Why can’t I post on Facebook
by Kattboy on 2018/12/11 17:50
For so many years I’ve payed so many songs and posted them on Facebook. But suddenly now I can’t . What happened? I love sharing the music to others. If this can’t be fixed soon I will be disappointed. Other than that i love this app .
Lost all my songs
by Foxy88 TDM on 2018/12/11 01:32
When i rejoin to play i look for all the songs i owned and its ALL GONE SO I HATE THIS
Magic piano
by yhunjomomiijiuyg on 2018/12/11 00:23
Yes love this game because it is such a good stress reliefer
Avoid at all cost
by psu1993bsme on 2018/12/11 00:14
If you don’t pay for the $8/month subscription you are inundated with ads. You have to watch and ad before you play the minute number of free songs and then after you play the song you have to watch another ad. To Smule 🖕🏻! I will never download a game of yours again.
This is a lying app
by Depressed_Sayori on 2018/12/10 20:05
I spent 25 smoola and the song I got said I would get 50000 xp and didn’t say it was one not and it wasn’t easy at all, the song wasn’t worth it at all and the song I bought was inspired by the real one. PLEASE REPORT THIS PERSON RIGHT AWAY OR I CAN DELETE THE APP AND YOUR WHOLE COMPANY!!! P.S. if you add a report and a write a review part on the page that you go to for liking or disliking a song. Thank you and do this or else it won’t be good for you!
Too many ads.
by Ozry on 2018/12/10 07:30
I thought I’d reinstall since it had been awhile since I played, now...every single song, before and after, has an ad played unless you have the premium or whatever it’s called for $8. No thank you. Good app otherwise, have had fun with it in the past, probably won’t use it again because of the constant ads. Uninstalled.
TO MUCH ADS
by ◎мℊ on 2018/12/10 03:16
Ok I really love the games it's fun and keeps me busy but wayyyyyyy the many ads and even worst they are long and boring and it only plays like three different ads
Smule Plz Read This
by buddybro120 on 2018/12/10 00:38
This is a very good piano game that I have been playing for a long time,So when I was watching an ad to get 5 smula It didn’t give me it,What it did was load for a bit than not give me anything. Smule plz fix this so I don’t delete this great game.
Came with my iPad already installed
by toulaaaaaaaaa on 2018/12/09 21:21
Why can’t I uninstall this game?
iPhone X
by Takirary on 2018/12/09 13:17
I used to play this game in my iPhone 5 and it was perfect. Now I change my iPhone to an iPhone X and I can’t play the game on the entire screen, i can only play in a specific area and the rest of the screen is black. I would like that you can adapt the game to the iPhone X please.
I’m not the time you
by picklllllll on 2018/12/09 12:17
I’m not the time you will not want to have this at work I’m sorry to text you this
USED to be awesome
by Commkiller on 2018/12/09 06:46
Okay so I've had this game since it first came out on iPhone very good game loved it i recently just downloaded it again and installed on my iPad and OMG ad play song another ad another ad another ad another ad another ad another ad another ad and another ad ad ad ad ad ad ad ad ad ad there are so many ads i cant even enjoy the music anymore or play the game. You turned a great app and great experience into a sorry excuse for adware, well I'm going to do what adaware does to adware and blast this game hopefully in the future when i try again you will have gotten rid of the ads every 2 seconds.
This app scams you
by billy_33 on 2018/12/09 05:51
I downloaded this app and to try it, it made me sign up for a “free” subscription that I cancelled after finding out I did not like this app, but when I checked my email I noticed I had received a receipt from Apple saying I was paying for this app!! I will never use anything made by this smule company ever again! They are just scam artists!! Don’t waste your time on this app it’s garbage!
I was doing so well!
by Monkeys1526 on 2018/12/09 04:22
In the daily challenge I was doing so good, hitting every note PERFECTLY and then I need to use four fingers, which I do then it PAUSES THE GAME! I click continue but the game is too fast for me to hit the next notes. And this happens so much! Pls fix!
Good game
by juleis ceser on 2018/12/08 23:17
This is a great game but every time I use 4 fingers it pauses the music and I have to start the song again so frustrating please fix it and I will rate it 5 stars.
Asome
by Heathernet on 2018/12/08 19:01
The game is super good I love it
Great Game but.......
by audio444 on 2018/12/08 18:36
I absolutely LOVE this game. I would’ve gave this app 5 stars easily, but there are WAY TOO MANY ADS!!!! Every time I want to replay, continue, or play a song, there’s an ad. I think this is very unnecessary. I really hope this will be taken into consideration.
ADS
by Dark halo bunni on 2018/12/08 08:56
it’s the number of ads before and after every song. I deleted it after less than an hour of playing. I used to love this game.
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
Junk
by average review on 2018/12/07 04:42
Lost all my songs and level. Then, tried to get a stupid subscription because everyone just had to have a subscription service nowadays, and it didn't even work. Useless.
Used to love, now it’s bad
by GreggyD717 on 2018/12/07 04:00
Re downloaded this app after not having it for a long time. Logged back in and my songs came right back. I jumped in only to find that when you play a four note sequence, it pauses the game. Why? What is the point of four note patterns if you can’t even play them in the flow of the song? Deleted again.
It’s okay...
by Normal is for loosers on 2018/12/05 23:18
The game has a really good music and is fun to play but the songs is hard to get. It takes a long time to get coins to buy the songs when they’re 25-75. Another thing I can’t play the game with headphones in, without interrupting everyone. Please fix this.
Love this game
by jahoskin on 2018/12/05 22:33
Yay
Why?
by Celxna on 2018/12/05 06:55
- Four finger taps are a pain because the exit and resume keeps popping up. Suggestion: remove this feature since there’s a literal pause, resume, and exit in the top left corner. - Too many ads Suggestion: an ad after a few rounds would be fine, but a skip button would be nice after a certain amount of time. An ad after every game is annoying and makes me want to delete the app. - I need to watch an ad before being able to re-download songs? Really? Suggestion: remove ads from already downloaded songs; people already watched an ad to get free songs. We watched an ad already, so shouldn’t we be able to play the song without having to watch an ad every single time? - Songs cost Suggestion: lower the cost of songs so it would be easier for app users to get more songs and enjoy the app more Suggestion: make it easier to gain more coins
No iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR support.
by Lane_Matthews56 on 2018/12/04 23:31
This was one of my most favorite fun and relaxing applications until upgrading to the iPhone XR and realizing their is no support for my device for full screen and the view it’s currently in is smaller than my previous 8 Plus playable screen size.
WAY TOO MANY ADS
by Kakrum on 2018/12/04 17:13
Used to LOVE this game. But now, I have to watch a video ad before AND AFTER every song I play? Are you kidding me? I spend more time watching adds than playing. Not worth it. Deleting app.
Ads
by imnotgiving on 2018/12/04 16:47
I would love the game if I didn’t have an ad every time I try to play something. Going to get a new app
Issues
by chickenugget_ on 2018/12/04 03:15
I really only use the app to do the Daily Challenges. My only issue is that the pause button is at the bottom of the screen where you’re tapping your note. Every time I go to hit a 4 note I accidentally pause the game which makes me lose points because when you press resume it automatically starts and it’s to late to hit the following notes in time. Really irritating.
Kind of aggravating at times
by wellsyaknow on 2018/12/03 23:25
It wouldn’t be so bad if you could change some settings...for instance...I’m using an iPad and every time I hit the 4 notes at the same time it pauses...I think I paused the game at least 15 times in row ...other than that the adds are really high but the gameplay helps to pass the time and they did the songs very well
Great
by Jasburge88 on 2018/12/02 23:22
I only play one song. It’s faded. I’ve always loved that song and now I get to play it.
Won’t change me instruments
by Spinningblackfan on 2018/12/02 21:53
I’m just stuck on one echoing crap keyboard and it won’t let me change!!! I already hate this crap app
Good
by mivrfovefkjsgbrj on 2018/12/02 17:57
Good
Too many ads
by LittleFangMyNigga on 2018/12/02 17:55
There are so many ads I couldn’t even breathe. Everything costs money and it’s just hard to use in general. You can’t even play the songs you wrote without paying for them with in-game coins. Don’t get this app. I would recommend piano tiles, it’s kind of the same thing but less rage inducing.
UGHHH!!! WHAT THE FRICK, SMULE?
by Snackassassin on 2018/12/02 17:19
Srsly. Smule. Up ur game. You are better than this. (NOT!!!) there are so many ads! It's like a second after you finish a song, an ad pops up. It gets SO ANNOYING. Also, there are barely any songs that are free anymore. There are only like 5 in the free songs section. WHYYYYY SMULE. And guess what that means? LOTS OF SONGS THAT COST COINS..There's vip, witch costs MONEY.There are songs, which cost MONEY. and when I try to get via it adds up. How you say? Well. I try to buy VIP, and I don't get it, But... ITS STILL PAYING ME. AND I DONT EVEN GET VIP. There is so much stuff that is wrong with this MONEY-OBSESSED GAME. PLZ FREKIN FIX IT OR IM DELETING THIS GAME FOR GOOD.
X support
by FelRobPauDip on 2018/12/01 07:08
iPhone X came out a year ago and there's no full screen for it! What's the devs even doing, XS is already out.
Do I See Bots?
by Avery bondurant on 2018/12/01 05:54
This app is good. But I have two things to say. 1, I get a lot of ads. (In which some apps I like to see or inspire me) and 2, when I go to the daily challenge, I see many people with profile photos and they are in the top 10 or so. I think they are boys because they are on the leaderboard EVERY SINGLE DAY. I try to get on but I HAVENT GOTTEN ON IT ONCE. Pls don’t use bots anymore. :(
Fun but too expensive & amount of ads is ridiculous
by Help84 on 2018/12/01 02:33
I downloaded this app again after not using it for several years....I remembered it was really Fun... in fact in the past I purchased a couple of songs ... to my surprise I no longer have access to those unless I pay a very high subscription fee . Wondering about the free version ? is not a game with ads... is just ads with a short game in between
Disappointing
by Swiita on 2018/12/01 01:42
Used to love this app. Now every time I try to do a difficult song, when I use 4 fingers it asks me if I want to resume. I can’t even get through one song and the adds. Don’t even get me started on the ridiculous amounts of adds. Deleting. Which is a shame. I used to really like this game
>:(
by Yourboi🙌 on 2018/11/30 02:49
I got this “game” and got a free trial. Then I cancelled it the 3rd day. I looked at my bank account and there was an 8 dollar deduction. It’s not really the 8 dollars that gets me mad it’s the fact that it lied.
Terrible app
by savyana39 on 2018/11/30 02:30
This app is crazy expensive at 7.99 a WEEK, plus it doesn’t have any kind of teaching value. The App Store makes it very difficult to unsubscribe too, so it wasn’t until two charges showed up on my account from this that I realized what was going on. As a piano teacher, I do not recommend!
Full of garbage copies
by christonhan on 2018/11/29 13:24
It’s now filled with thousands of stupid copies of copies of copies of customized songs. We can rarely find the original. Please remove all songs submitted by users and remove the song creation feature.
Some stuff just too stupid to overcome
by Tim5489 on 2018/11/29 12:15
overall its a pretty fun app but a few things I honestly just hate is having to pay for a VIP account to play certain songs I mean comeon now and then you have to renew the account to keep playing the songs so why in the world would i wanna do that to play a few songs that I like? Another thing that I hate I hate is the fact that sometimes when I purchase a song it gives me this ''couldnt get resources'' response and thats total garbage I mean I have a good internet connection and it still doesnt work. So I waste my time watching a bunch of commercials to purchase a song that doesnt even work. Not trying to dis the app cuz I enjoy it but those two things cause soooo much frustration for me
Bad
by MellienLost on 2018/11/29 07:00
Need. Moore. Advertising.
Can’t even play it...
by 🐔🐍🐭🐑🐝 on 2018/11/29 06:41
Every time I try to tap three or more fingers, the game spdoes not sense it. When I tap four fingers to hit the notes, it pauses the game. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It’s impossible to play now.
Needs support for IPhone X/XS/XS MAX/XR
by Musically User 30 on 2018/11/29 06:39
When ever I go in this app it only shows a bloc like an iPhone 6 and I don’t like and can you please support the app for newer apple devices
This app is a scam
by Crazycrafter231 on 2018/11/29 02:40
I thought I could play any song FOR FREE BUT NOPE the songs that are good cost money why just a waste of your time the only music that’s in that app for free is she boring old songs like marry had a little lamb and other dumb children songs DONT BUY IT WASTE OF YOUR TIME THE ADDS ARE JUST FAKE.
Love it
by Alphaomega7655 on 2018/11/29 02:39
It’s such a great game and I am addicted to it
Love it but some problems...
by The levels are very fast! on 2018/11/28 00:28
So I love the whole thing and stuff I love playing this on my phone but the thing is, on my iPad I’ve been having some problems. First when I’m playing a song on hard and I tap three fingers it always pops up the thing that says Go back to song book and resume and all that, another thing is there’s no many ads, when im going to play one of my songs that I’ve played before, it says you will get your reward after this message and yea those are some problem I’ve head and please dis these problems.
Awsomenessssssss❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
by beatiful 3455 on 2018/11/28 00:05
It is totally amazing and it is so fun!!!
Ads Everywhere
by Ossenkop1 on 2018/11/28 00:04
I hate it so much and I even played this when I was literally seven years old. I recently redownloaded the app after I felt like I should retry it after a few years and it got worse! No matter where you go, ads pop up. I get that they get money and publicity off of it but, after every song you play, you have to listen to an ad. If you want to play a free song, you have to watch an ad. I think this is okay but, when it comes to watching an ad after every song, I draw the line. I’m deleting this app as fast as I can. Would not recommend for use if you get stressed easily.
I like it a lot but one thing...
by PikaEnderGirl on 2018/11/27 16:25
So I really like the game a lot it’s really fun to play but I have one thing to say... YOU NEED MORE FREE SONGS! Like %99 of them need vip or smula (I think that’s what it’s called) and there is only like %1 free and you just NEED more free ones seriously 😒 It’s boring playing the same ones over and over again and also I need help with hard mode because every time I use four fingers it pause and then it keeps being like “play faster” and please help me on how to fix this and but seriously PLEASE MAKE MORE SONGS FREE!!
Fun app!
by KKcrystalpheonix on 2018/11/26 21:43
I love this app and it’s really fun! The only thing that I find frustrating is that when I purchased a song with smoola, it doesn’t show up in the my songs section. To get the song I have to search it up. It kinda gets annoying. But overall, great app!👍
Great! Please read
by Labs are my LIFE on 2018/11/26 07:21
So, I’ve had this app for a while but I have a few issues: The songs cost WAY too much I mean it’s pretty hard to get smoola, I think it should be 15 smoola every song and for holidays it should be a discount so it costs 10. I hear little clicks in each song and they shouldn’t be there You should definitely come up with another update because the songs are getting kind of boring Otherwise the app is GREAT! And I definitely think you should download it and please fix the bugs and update it!
Terrible. App. Charge you money every time.
by Abbjax2 on 2018/11/26 02:21
I have cancelled my subscription every single time... but still get charged $8 over and over again. I have been charged for something I do not even use. The app is completely deleted off my phone and I am still getting charged.
I don’t like this any more sadly
by djjdjdjdhdyfyf on 2018/11/25 22:39
I used to love this game but every time I try to play a song an add pops up and it’s super annoying plus after the song another add pops up. It’s also sometimes really glitchy and when I’m doing the right fingering it says I’m doing it wrong 🙄
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
A promblem
by NathanBlox on 2018/11/25 19:38
Every time I do hard difficulty, every time I have to do 4 fingers, it always makes me pause and asks if I want to go back to change difficulty or whatever. It makes get less points then I really should be getting because every time I resume it says, play faster. Which doesn’t make sense. Can someone at least fix this problem.
Not worth downloading
by Johnnylego123 on 2018/11/25 09:00
SMULE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ME!!!!!!!!!!! WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE ULTIMATE FURIFIED RAGE BOILING UNDERNEATH MY SKIN!!! I WILL NOT GIVE IN ANYMORE!!! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO WASTE MONEY THEN DO NOT EVEN DOWNLOAD THIS APP CAUSE TRUST ME YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY OR IT WONT ******* BE WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!! UGH GREEDINESS DISGUSTS ME!!!
Horrible money grubbers
by Legacy561 on 2018/11/25 03:46
$7.99 a week for full access what are they high? Netflix is cheaper than this game and you get more. Game use to be $7 a month.
DELETS SONGS
by angryanimegirl on 2018/11/24 23:51
I had gotten the Harry Potter theme for free and it deleted it the next day
Crap
by amazonkingi on 2018/11/24 16:26
This app is crap everything is vip this the worst app I’ve ever played
It’s fine, but glitchy on the four-note
by B CopeDad on 2018/11/24 11:27
On the hard versions of songs, it will often pause the song if you hit four notes at once. When it unpauses, it tells you to play faster and gets rid of any multiplier you had, and often ruins your score. For instance, I was playing the nutcracker theme, in which you must simultaneously hit four notes multiple times, often in indirect succession, and I got a mere two stars because of it. As such, it gave me all but one star, so I have returned the favor.
Too many ads
by hugehippoh on 2018/11/24 08:01
Every time I click on a new song to play there is an ad, and immediately after I finish the song another pops up... Overall it’s getting redundant and ridiculous!
Great app, but ruined by adds
by Icedairplane95 on 2018/11/24 05:28
I used to love this app and i used it every day but now its overrun by ads. I can’t play a song without an ad after it.
There is only one problem...
by jungkook24 on 2018/11/24 05:17
Sometimes when I tap the screen with 4 fingers the menu opens up, and that keeps happening ALL the time. Because of that, I can’t play the musics I like. The game is really good, I really like it, but I can’t play the songs in the hard level!
Adds
by realDiblasio on 2018/11/24 04:56
Too many adds it wasn’t like that before but overall 3 stars
NO SMOOLAS
by free v bucks on 2018/11/24 04:47
IT DONT GIMME MY SMOOLAS WHYYYYY?!!!!
me = triggered
by Sir Wire of the Hidden Jewell on 2018/11/24 04:38
Whenever you do the four fingered thingy, the settings thingy pops up, you know what pops up if you click the pause button? Yea that pops up and it messes me up sooo much FIX THIS NOW
MOST RELAXING GAME I EVER PLAYED (I love it)
by poopmegendon on 2018/11/24 02:00
I really liked this game because that I love playing music games and it just gave out my inner feeling.💆🏿‍♀️💆🏿‍♀️💆🏿‍♀️💆🏿‍♀️ love it 😊
Stupid as can be
by danisthemandog on 2018/11/24 00:56
This app Smule Magic Piano is so ridiculous. If you just want to play a song without paying or watching a add they give the worst piano songs out there. Then for smoola,to get a good song like bohemian rhapsody and I didn’t want to spend money so I watched a video. The videos are 30 seconds. Then once I am finished with the video it says “You got 5 Smoola.” Then I check my smoola bar none added. And it is just the most boring game out there. So that is why this came is a piece of trash and the developers didn’t try hard enough. It is a scam of Piano Tiles, now Piano Tiles is awesome. Thanks for reading.
Why the heck is it slowing down?!
by HizzleBoo on 2018/11/23 21:34
I just downloaded this game and I have to admit,it was pretty fun. But I am super bad. Every time I get a key wrong it slows down! It’s just super annoying! And also you have to muck ads. Every time I finish a song,there is always an ad. So that is all that I want you to fix.
Used to be AMAZING
by WordsOfTruth💯 on 2018/11/23 19:14
But then they got greedy there is a commercial after and before every song I reinstalled and logged into my account on new phone it took away ALL of the songs I had gotten over the years. Just so disappointed in what they have done to this app.
Songs...
by JuJu_Rosey on 2018/11/23 17:46
So I really enjoy this game, but once I finish all the songs in my songbook, I have to hunt down other songs to play. There are few free songs that I like, and it's really hard to get smules. Please add more songs for us to master every time we level up, along with more smules every time we complete an achievement and/or level up, than just the regular 1 smule every achievement and level. Please read this and do something about it. Thank you

This the BEST GAME EVER
Too many adds and you have to pay

THERES TOO MANY ADDS! And you have to pay for songs ITS RIDICULOUS
Do not Play
by ajoshplafif on 2018/11/22 17:28
This game keeps making me mess up. Every time I tap once it says I tapped 3 times, and I don’t like it when thing like that happen. One of my friends raged because of that.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.

The songs are ok but I think that there are way to many ads! Just deleted this game👎🏼
I did not agree to pay any amount. I cannot delete it
by Nawlins Dee on 2018/11/22 03:39
I did not agree to pay any amount. I cannot delete it! I don’t want it. I’m not using it. I don’t know why without my agreeing to pay anything, it won’t let me delete it!!!!! I don’t know how to get rid of it.
Very Frustrating
by Pop rock 101 on 2018/11/22 01:00
For me, I like this game. However, whenever I try to do a difficulty level hard, whenever I get to a note that I have to use four fingers it will usually pop-up the thing that has like resume, restart etc. I’ve never gotten through a difficulty level hard and not have that thing show up at least once when trying to play four fingers. It frustrates me and when that happens it usually also make loose xp and not get 3 stars when I should. Fix this please.
Daily challenges
by raegan hi hj on 2018/11/21 19:09
This game is sort of fun it isn’t the best game ever... I’m super competitive so I really only do the daily challenges, but I really don’t use the game for anything else

TOO MANY ADS!!!!!
“Free songs”
by Monkeys are bae❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ on 2018/11/21 02:55
I was playing magic piano and for the most part I loved it until i clicked to play a “free” song and it took 25 coins away. I worked extremely hard and do not think I should have lost them for a “free” song. Also I find it highly annoying that to play a song adds pop up everywhere. I’m consider deleting the app.
Not what it once was
by Chryss1979 on 2018/11/20 20:07
I liked the game, good selection of songs, for both premium and free. Seems there are hardly any free songs anymore, all my old free ones can no longer be played without paying for them. And now there are sooo many ads. Not really worth playing, anymore. Such a shame, will not be spending anymore money on it.
Some Glitches
by Jenny alagha on 2018/11/20 17:12
Well, This game is good but.. on faded it said go faster and I was. And all the other songs said it too. Maybe you can Fix it... Maybe it’s a Glitch or not. One of them said Go slower Even and I was... ^.^ Well I hope you can Update it or fix. Thank you.
TOO MANY ADS!
by Write-a-bug on 2018/11/20 13:22
I used to play this game all the time a while ago and I thought I would start playing again. But now there are ads after EVERY song! And you have to watch an ad to play the free songs! It used to not be like that. What happened? Why so many ads?
Its great but
by j.kai on 2018/11/20 06:00
This app is great and i love it, but theres one thing that would make it perfect. It would be great if you could favorite songs, aka send them to a new tab right above the My Songs tab. This would be great because i have a lot of songs i don't play anymore, ever since you added the composer i just got a bunch of undertale songs and now i only play those. It would be great if you added this.
Used to be a great app, but has since become almost unusable without paying.
by HNB02 on 2018/11/19 21:02
I've seen these kinds of reviews with other people, where they have purchased the app in the past, loved the game then, and have since deleted and redownload the app only to find that it had fallen into the hole of nickel and ding you for every little thing, then playing an ad every chance they get, that many other once great apps had done before it. While I would like to say that I am not one of those people now leaving this review, I can't. In the past it was truly a great app, that brought me to want to learn more about music and learning the piano, and eventually moving on to other instruments, but now it fails to bring that aspect to the table. The ads can sometimes make it infuriating to play as, if you are playing a free song, you must watch an ad before it will even download, and then after EVERY song you are forced to watch an ad before being allowed to return to the "songbook". And with the very scarce variety of free songs provided, you are essentially being forced to pay for coins or memberships in order to get anything new out of the app. From what I have collected in the week since redownload into this game is that smile has begun to value customer satisfaction less, and profit more, which for the record, wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing, except for the fact that they have gone overkill on the profit aspect and completely dropped the customer satisfaction (the more important) aspect. I hope the developers actually read these reviews and improve these issues in upcoming updates.
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2018/11/19 18:50
So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
A Fun App, Too Many Ads
by DesJ_ on 2018/11/19 17:21
I think that the app is a good way to spend free-time. I find it fun and relaxing to play my favorite songs, but what I don’t like about it is the constant ads. Every time I get finished with a song, it’s always something trying to get me to download an app, and I get that, but it’s annoying after it appears sixty times, practically each with a video. I wouldn’t mind an ad after every three or so songs, but I really don’t feel like waiting to play another song.
Too many ads
by nic.bags on 2018/11/19 05:38
This is a great app, even with the copious amount of songs you can only play if you buy them. But ads after every single song you play?! I play no more than 4 songs every time I open the app because the excessive ads are just too annoying
Too many ads
by Ced1045 on 2018/11/19 04:00
I do one piece and before and after is a 30 sec ad
Too many adds
by iconic._.vibes(insta on 2018/11/19 03:19
The app is great!!! It has a large variety of songs to choose, and master. The only thing that I can’t stand are the adds! I hate adds and there is always an add before and after I play a song. It would be way better if I was able to encounter an add fore every 4 songs I play.
Used to like it
by salt^3 on 2018/11/18 17:25
Used to be a good app. I had this app when I was younger and loved it and now they want you to spend money to play a fake piano. Also every time I play on the hard difficulty it puts up the pause menu like every three seconds it’s pretty annoying and I’m very disappointed
Composing
by Bre🤩 on 2018/11/18 05:39
I was so excited when I first found out that you could compose on this app!! 🥳 Then, I started to compose a song. I realized most notes that are needed for all songs were not there. I was very disappointed with this app.🥺 Please update this app, I will bring up my review if this is fixed. Until then, I think I might as well delete this app from my phone until then.🎼 I definitely don’t recommend this app. My apologies for the negative comments. If there is another way to fix this problem, please respond ASAP, and let me know what to do. Thank you so much!!🥰
Used to be very cool and enjoyable now 2 ads per song!
by DrunkenDervish on 2018/11/18 04:16
This used to be a real fun game that I could play with my daughter but now the ads are unbearable. Usually two per song and you no longer gain points for watching the ads. This game has become a rip off. Also if you return to the game after deleting it all your progress is lost.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
nice, but you just went down the drain.
by impactfalls on 2017/09/05 02:46
Sorry but I just couldn't keep this for even a night. all the songs that were free back then now cost coins and money. theres barely anymore free songs, they now all either cost 25-75 coins or they require a vip membership. I liked the addition where you can compose your own songs because you could express your creativity as well as have a wider variety of songs to play, but this has gone too far down the wrong path. I had magic piano like three times before, the only reason i ever deleted them was to empty space until i could get them again. Today i downloaded it expecting just the same amount of content with it as i did before, but I was so disappointed to find out it was the opposite. This app used to be fun, you had a large variety of free songs to play with more limited amounts of ads, but now every time you make a single move of your index finger you have to see an advertisement of a beach girl game or some pattern coloring app. There's only like 8 songs that show up when I look at the "free songs" category, but every other category is like 98% currency-based. this company's only care now is money, and nothing else. When i had the app a few months ago, I was actually able to do things, but now I can't do anything on this app anymore without having to pay money.
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻It Is Awesome!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
by Hambo777 on 2017/06/22 13:04
This Game Is So Awesome And Addicting!!! 🙂 If You Are Wondering, Hmm... Should I Use Some Of My Bootyfull Storage On This Game?? 😐 The Answer In My Opinion (Like Everyone's) 😂 Has To Be A Yes!!! 👍🏻 😃 Well If You Are Wondering If It Is Challenging... 😐 Well Of Course It Is!!!! 😃 In My Opinion, I Love Challenging Games! 🙂 Also If They Are Challenging Enough They Can Make Me Mad! 😂 I Am Almost 12 So That Is Funny Because When I Get Mad It Is Hilarious 😂 So I Need To Stop Talking About Me And Talk More About The Game... 😂 So When You Play On A Tablet Or A iPad Or Anything Like Tablets Or iPads And You Play To Many Songs Your Fingers Can Start Hurting!! 😱 Also, You Can Press Pause After You Have Done The Song Once And It Will Say "Learn This Song" 👍🏻 When You Press It, It Shows The Creator Of The Song Playing It. 👍🏻 Just To Tell You They Play It Perfectly!!! 👍🏻 And Also If You Get Into The Menu Where You Can Pick Your Difficulty (Easy, Medium, Or Hard), At The Right, Top Corner There Is Three Dots ⏺⏺⏺ If You Press The Three Dots There Is A Setting That Says "Practice" Press That And Every One Of The Notes Will Be A One Note 👍🏻 Ok That's It For Me Today #AutoCorrectMasterOut 😂
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Ads. Are getting. Annoying.
by Apersonthatistillknow:) on 2018/11/10 17:46
Have been addicted to this game for years. It’s fun, it’s relaxing, it’s challenging. Find a song you love playing? Open it up to see the notes and learn to play it in real life. Helps you learn to move your fingers individually and keep time for playing instruments in the real world. Only 2 problems: you can’t really play this game much at all unless you pay the $2-$3 a month fee. Coins are ridiculously hard to get (like 1 or 2 every time you level up), and songs are ridiculously expensive (25 if homemade, 50 if appmade). Sometimes it doesn't even remember you bought a song! Which is why I pay for it (and don’t regret paying for it)... only now I get a smule ad after playing each song that takes a while to load and doesn't usually even play. I don’t pay for the app to watch ads. I already know the Sing app and others exist and also already know I don’t want them (yet at least). I was perfectly content with this app, would’ve rated it 5 stars despite having to pay, but now the ads are a constant nuisance and playing the game can now be annoying, especially when I’m trying to relax.
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.

WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!

Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Greek American on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤

Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
Glitchy and too many ads
by luka / ルーカ on 2018/06/13 03:05
I’m not too sure if this has happened to anybody, but I’ve recently been going into the app only to find that the songs I’ve purchased are not appearing. Typically, the “My Songs” tab only showed the songs you’ve earned when you’ve leveled up, and took a few seconds to show the songs you’ve bought. Now the songs I’ve bought don’t show up at all, and if I want to play a certain song I have to look it up. Super annoying since I have the tendency to scroll and pass something I want to play without thinking about it first. On the other hand, the ads are just too much. After almost every song I play that has a difficulty (not going into the section where it says “Practice) an ad pops up. Having the ads when you are trying to earn Smoola without playing a song makes sense, but having it after every song played is just flat out tedious. Aside from the glitches and ads, the app is pretty fun to play around with. If it didn’t have these problems, I’d probably be on it more often, but the app is slowly being ruined for me.
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Fun, but...
by cheese1342🧀🧀🧀🧀 on 2018/05/09 03:26
I love the app and all, but I have some suggestions. First of all, for the sing jams thing, could you make an option for it, the option being not having to hit the exact note thing. Second, for the composer option, can you make it easy to figure out how to change the timing so the song you made doesn't go really slow? It frustrates me because other people's songs are the right tempo, but my songs never are. Third, when your searching for a song, could you make an option for only songs composed by smule show up? Sometimes, I don't want other people's songs because they can be wrong. Sometimes I want the actual correct version, if of course, smule made the song. That's it for now, so please make the changes. Other than that stuff, it's a great app. Oh, and one more thing, there are too many adds. And they come up too often. If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE ADDS, please make them different. I'm so sick of seeing your karaoke app's add. It just makes me not want to play this game or get the karaoke app.
It’s great but more
by kelly old mellie on 2018/07/23 05:50
I love this app you can play really good songs and especially I love how you put Beethoven songs I love playing them every day I love listening to music it just is pretty easy but I like it the only thing is I hate when you have to watch an ad before you play one of your favorite songs please just get rid of this these ads because like I’m starting to hate this app but I really love it and I love just like everything and it’s really nice how you put every song but and I don’t like how you have to cost coins for it and I just wanted to be like you know how on karaoke you can choose whatever song you want by now on this you don’t choose like what song you want and I want to choose whatever song I want to play but I can’t because I’m trying to practice on my 🎹 even though I love it and the only thing is just get rid of all the ads😘😛😠 all at the same time
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
This is not fair
by Frankiew0415060 on 2017/09/23 14:25
Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!
by WaterAirFireEarth on 2018/07/13 02:05
Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
It's okay, but...
by D.Mattle on 2017/11/20 21:10
It's a little frustrating when you level up you're rewarded with a song you have already gotten for free. Also, the daily free songs just repeat over and over rarely giving you something you don't already have. One more thing I don't like is that most of the really good songs are only available with a "monthly subscription". That's it, everything else is good. 3 stars Update: I've been playing this game since 2011. It's always had its quirks that made it a pain in one way or another. The last year or so it has gotten so forceful with advertising that it's not even fun anymore. I very rarely play it anymore. Usually if I'm waiting in the car while the wife is shopping or something. There is an ad before and after every song. You can't close it without closing the game. Ridiculous to have to watch a 30 second ad to get your points, so you can watch another ad before you play the same song again at a different difficulty then another ad to get your stars. So I'm taking my previous stars back. Much to greedy anymore.
Good for fun, but not really for a wallet.
by ILuvHetalia on 2018/10/03 02:23
I wanted to use the free trial for a little bit, just to play some of the songs I liked. Well, it reactivated the trial somehow after I cancelled it. I didn’t do anything to reactivate it. And it didn’t even tell me. So, now I’m out $25 cause of it. You guys need to at least say it when you charge for the subscription cause I had no clue it was happening. I don’t have a job of my own, and I was using a credit card my parent opened for me. I hope you guys read this and figure out a way to fix this issue so people know when they’re gonna be charged. Or, instead of telling the, after they’re charged, tell them a few days before so they can cancel if need be. Not only that, but I can’t even access songs I was able to play with the VIP subscription after they were in my songbook. Why not just remove them from the song book rather than taunt players who cancelled their subscription with songs they played. You guys have gone downhill over the years...
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2018/11/19 18:50
So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
What happened?
by OMGitswolfie on 2017/12/23 02:43
What in the world happened to this game?! I'm just a kid and i used to love this game when I was really young where I could play any song and didn't have to pay for any! What happened to that? You guys seem more greedy for money and we need a freaking VIP membership to get songs that is really popular?? WHAT?! Membership costs like 100 bucks! And what's with all the adds?? Everytime I just finish a song an add comes up and most of them are apps I already have! Some adds have sexual content which I shouldn't be seeing! I really enjoy this app but the songs that I love are like 75 coins now! Now I have to copy it and change a note just so I could play it! What's up with all of that stuff?! If the adds get away or the VIP is more cheap like 10 bucks or something more people would buy it instead of making it 100 bucks people wouldn't buy it so expensive! Too many adds are occuring! I give this a 3 stars.
Not much fun anymore!
by DallasFawn on 2018/06/02 22:41
I have been using this app for over 5 years. I loved it and was addicted. I loved challenging myself to play the easy level perfect, then medium, then hard. If I messed up, I restarted. Many songs were quite challenging. I loved it until level 100; the highest you can go. It’s like the developers of the app gave up. No more achievements to earn, no coins for leveling up and no new instruments. How disappointing!! I played this app every day. It was fun, challenging, and relaxing. I agree the VIP members only should be removed. I also would pay a small fee to remove the horrendous amount of ads that I am forced to endure. It was never like that when I started. And I had an issue a year or so back where I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Lost all my progress. Songs were there but no stars. Like starting all over again. I was upset. So, where once I would have given it 5 stars, I gave 3. I was debating if I should give it a 2. And I forgot to mention the daily challenge of which I never got into the top 50. How did all of us, get an average score of around 1,212 points while 1 person got 2,065. Impossible, and it happened many times. If the developers put better changes in an update and make the app similar to what it used to be, I would give them 5 stars again. I am an older person and I’m disappointed in this app.
This app is horrible.
by Jammapanda on 2017/07/08 03:05
Let me start with the fact that you only earn one smoola every time you level up, which every song costs 25 to 75 smoola so that is very ridiculous also taking into account that to get more than around 30 XP, you have to play a new song. Next the game will tell you that your finger is "too far right" or "too far left" when your finger is exactly on the note which brings down points. The songs are mostly a bunch of crap and if you buy a song that isn't what it says it was you can't return it, no you're stuck with a worthless song. Also let me mention, there is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG YOU PLAY. I have the patience to sit through an ad every two to three songs but after every single song? It's ridiculous. You have to pay an $8 a week membership just to play certain songs or not have to use smoola to unlock songs which is absurd. Maybe $8 a month but not a week. A month would be around $32 so a year would be around $500. Wow. This is a horrible app.
This app makes my life much better....

I’ve played songs on Magic Piano for five years. I’m sorry to see so many complaints in the reviews. I guess they are dissatisfied with the game element. I just play the song book as I have a subscription yearly. It is dang little money to pay for the hours of pleasure it affords me. I’m 78 years old and there is hardly a day goes by that I don’t have my Smule fix. I have mastered over 400 songs pretty much sticking to the traditional, musical theatre, and classical ones. I like to see my scores even though I can’t usually better my highest scores probably posted years ago. My old fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. I love the concerts I play for myself and get great satisfaction in playing my favorites over and over. Use my iPad Pro and love Magic piano. ❤️❤️
Normies only; not for music enthusiasts
by Darren is epic435 on 2018/03/08 01:47
If you are a hip, cool young adult female, you would love this. For a serious musician or even someone starting in music, this is not for you. Most songs available are from smule, and put to the top of every list. All of the songs are dumb pop numbers that never captured the depth of said pop numbers even if the originals were still shallow. Almost every song put out by them is easy to play and sounds vaguely like the original. As for the composer feature, its stupid. There are only 2 time signatures available, 4/4 and 3/4, meaning no waltz in 6/8 or oddities in 5/4. The system is for beginners who don’t know how to read sheet music which is fine, except this is the ONLY way to write songs, which makes songwriting here TEDIOUS. Also, once you post your song, the only way for it to be seen is if someone searches one of your tags or titles. Meaning all of smule’s crappy songs are on top. They also have a weird fetish for chasing cars.
To the ruthless complainers
by Jane Spindly on 2017/11/11 02:33
For those who complain about ads, go read a book. They're just a few seconds long, and you can close them easily. If it gives you crashes I'm sorry, but just do what I do: play the entire song except for the last note. Then you can go and play a different one. Yes, that blocks off your experience, but you can just get one of the easy XP 1000+ songs and be rich. And for those who say all the good songs are VIP, go read two books. You do not deserve the pleasure of hearing the masterpieces of Disney orchestras. Musicals have fantastic music too, so please stop complaining about your cool teenage rap songs being unavailable. This is the only app you'll ever need, if you can't see that then you obviously don't recognize how much of a blessing it is.
Garbage
by TheGantos119 on 2017/12/28 19:21
I used to like this app. But now it’s just a cheap excuse for money. There’s too many ads. You have to watch an ad or else you won’t get any score for playing a song. You can’t play offline either, or else it won’t show your songs. You know why? Because ads have to have internet to work. I’m not doing a monthly subscription for smule points either. It’s just a piano app. It’s not like Xbox Live or PlayStation+ where it makes sense to have a monthly subscription. Because with those, you have more than just one game. Not just one where you tap the screen. I just don’t see the point in that. I’m sick of the video ads too. You’re forced to watch one once you finish a song and it gets annoying and repetitive very quickly. Not to mention you have to watch them if you want to get more songs. Or, you could subscribe to smule. Again, I don’t see why anyone would want to do this. If this game was fair and not such an obvious excuse to make a few dollars, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
Pretty awesome!
by Okay👍🏼 on 2017/06/30 22:27
This game is so addicting and fun, it's cool that other players can make their own songs and compose actual real songs too!👍😁 But most the time they get the song wrong and don't do it right and mess up the song they are actually trying to make...but it's ok. Some songs people compose are actually very good👍. Also, it makes a bigger song selection.😀It is really hard to get money though, you have to watch a 20 sec. ad to get at least 5 smoola (money). Ads are really sooo annoying!😒😔 Recently there has been an ad every time I play a song (Finish a song). Pretty annoying! Problems: - Too many ads - Someone should check bad, incorrect, or songs that aren't really...songs... Overall, this game is so simple, yet challenging...which makes it so fun! 😀
Steals your smoola
by iraz12345 on 2018/06/13 20:14
So I’ve always loved this app and had it on my devices since 2015, always loved it. Now here’s where it gets annoying. There are times when I would search up a song and try and purchase it with smoola. I looked up the song “suteki Dane” by final fantasy and had 29 in smoola. The price for the song was 25 so I was like okay, I can afford this. I clicked the icon with the 25 smoola on it and it started loading saying “preparing your song” and then out of nowhere it said “something went wrong” so in my head I was like, OK. I’ll just wait a bit then open up my songs cause I already bought it. I opened up the app again and it still had that purchase next to the song so I clicked on it again and it said I don’t have enough smoola so I was like oh I think it might have been in my song book already. But no! I went to my song book and it wasn’t even there and smule charged me 25 smoola and now I’m left with 4 smoola on my account. And I didn’t even get the song I wanted to buy. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Ads are too annoying-full version too costly
by csf97 on 2018/04/23 00:02
I don’t mind an ad every so often, but it has gotten to where you have to view an ad to play a song, view an ad as soon as you hit continue after finishing the song and then view an ad again as soon as you select the next song. I will never buy Adventure Capitalist no matter how many times you show me that super annoying ad. I would love to play it to relax and get rid of stress, but the constant ads cause stress instead of relieving it. I would buy this game in a heartbeat if it was $19 or less as a one time purchase, but the monthly subscription is ridiculously priced. Also, I don’t know if it is my new iPad Generation 6 or the latest iOS update but it is incorrectly penalizing for “too many fingers” the last day or so, especially when it’s a 4 finger note. Please, Smule, reconsider the number of ads or your pricing method and fix the recent incorrect “too many fingers” error.

Why can’t I post on Facebook
by Kattboy on 2018/12/11 17:50
For so many years I’ve payed so many songs and posted them on Facebook. But suddenly now I can’t . What happened? I love sharing the music to others. If this can’t be fixed soon I will be disappointed. Other than that i love this app .
Lost all my songs
by Foxy88 TDM on 2018/12/11 01:32
When i rejoin to play i look for all the songs i owned and its ALL GONE SO I HATE THIS
Magic piano
by yhunjomomiijiuyg on 2018/12/11 00:23
Yes love this game because it is such a good stress reliefer
Avoid at all cost
by psu1993bsme on 2018/12/11 00:14
If you don’t pay for the $8/month subscription you are inundated with ads. You have to watch and ad before you play the minute number of free songs and then after you play the song you have to watch another ad. To Smule 🖕🏻! I will never download a game of yours again.
This is a lying app
by Depressed_Sayori on 2018/12/10 20:05
I spent 25 smoola and the song I got said I would get 50000 xp and didn’t say it was one not and it wasn’t easy at all, the song wasn’t worth it at all and the song I bought was inspired by the real one. PLEASE REPORT THIS PERSON RIGHT AWAY OR I CAN DELETE THE APP AND YOUR WHOLE COMPANY!!! P.S. if you add a report and a write a review part on the page that you go to for liking or disliking a song. Thank you and do this or else it won’t be good for you!
Too many ads.
by Ozry on 2018/12/10 07:30
I thought I’d reinstall since it had been awhile since I played, now...every single song, before and after, has an ad played unless you have the premium or whatever it’s called for $8. No thank you. Good app otherwise, have had fun with it in the past, probably won’t use it again because of the constant ads. Uninstalled.
TO MUCH ADS
by ◎мℊ on 2018/12/10 03:16
Ok I really love the games it's fun and keeps me busy but wayyyyyyy the many ads and even worst they are long and boring and it only plays like three different ads
Smule Plz Read This
by buddybro120 on 2018/12/10 00:38
This is a very good piano game that I have been playing for a long time,So when I was watching an ad to get 5 smula It didn’t give me it,What it did was load for a bit than not give me anything. Smule plz fix this so I don’t delete this great game.
Came with my iPad already installed
by toulaaaaaaaaa on 2018/12/09 21:21
Why can’t I uninstall this game?
iPhone X
by Takirary on 2018/12/09 13:17
I used to play this game in my iPhone 5 and it was perfect. Now I change my iPhone to an iPhone X and I can’t play the game on the entire screen, i can only play in a specific area and the rest of the screen is black. I would like that you can adapt the game to the iPhone X please.
I’m not the time you
by picklllllll on 2018/12/09 12:17
I’m not the time you will not want to have this at work I’m sorry to text you this
USED to be awesome
by Commkiller on 2018/12/09 06:46
Okay so I've had this game since it first came out on iPhone very good game loved it i recently just downloaded it again and installed on my iPad and OMG ad play song another ad another ad another ad another ad another ad another ad another ad and another ad ad ad ad ad ad ad ad ad ad there are so many ads i cant even enjoy the music anymore or play the game. You turned a great app and great experience into a sorry excuse for adware, well I'm going to do what adaware does to adware and blast this game hopefully in the future when i try again you will have gotten rid of the ads every 2 seconds.
This app scams you
by billy_33 on 2018/12/09 05:51
I downloaded this app and to try it, it made me sign up for a “free” subscription that I cancelled after finding out I did not like this app, but when I checked my email I noticed I had received a receipt from Apple saying I was paying for this app!! I will never use anything made by this smule company ever again! They are just scam artists!! Don’t waste your time on this app it’s garbage!
I was doing so well!
by Monkeys1526 on 2018/12/09 04:22
In the daily challenge I was doing so good, hitting every note PERFECTLY and then I need to use four fingers, which I do then it PAUSES THE GAME! I click continue but the game is too fast for me to hit the next notes. And this happens so much! Pls fix!
Good game
by juleis ceser on 2018/12/08 23:17
This is a great game but every time I use 4 fingers it pauses the music and I have to start the song again so frustrating please fix it and I will rate it 5 stars.
Asome
by Heathernet on 2018/12/08 19:01
The game is super good I love it
Great Game but.......
by audio444 on 2018/12/08 18:36
I absolutely LOVE this game. I would’ve gave this app 5 stars easily, but there are WAY TOO MANY ADS!!!! Every time I want to replay, continue, or play a song, there’s an ad. I think this is very unnecessary. I really hope this will be taken into consideration.
ADS
by Dark halo bunni on 2018/12/08 08:56
it’s the number of ads before and after every song. I deleted it after less than an hour of playing. I used to love this game.
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
Junk
by average review on 2018/12/07 04:42
Lost all my songs and level. Then, tried to get a stupid subscription because everyone just had to have a subscription service nowadays, and it didn't even work. Useless.
Used to love, now it’s bad
by GreggyD717 on 2018/12/07 04:00
Re downloaded this app after not having it for a long time. Logged back in and my songs came right back. I jumped in only to find that when you play a four note sequence, it pauses the game. Why? What is the point of four note patterns if you can’t even play them in the flow of the song? Deleted again.
It’s okay...
by Normal is for loosers on 2018/12/05 23:18
The game has a really good music and is fun to play but the songs is hard to get. It takes a long time to get coins to buy the songs when they’re 25-75. Another thing I can’t play the game with headphones in, without interrupting everyone. Please fix this.
Love this game
by jahoskin on 2018/12/05 22:33
Yay
Why?
by Celxna on 2018/12/05 06:55
- Four finger taps are a pain because the exit and resume keeps popping up. Suggestion: remove this feature since there’s a literal pause, resume, and exit in the top left corner. - Too many ads Suggestion: an ad after a few rounds would be fine, but a skip button would be nice after a certain amount of time. An ad after every game is annoying and makes me want to delete the app. - I need to watch an ad before being able to re-download songs? Really? Suggestion: remove ads from already downloaded songs; people already watched an ad to get free songs. We watched an ad already, so shouldn’t we be able to play the song without having to watch an ad every single time? - Songs cost Suggestion: lower the cost of songs so it would be easier for app users to get more songs and enjoy the app more Suggestion: make it easier to gain more coins
No iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR support.
by Lane_Matthews56 on 2018/12/04 23:31
This was one of my most favorite fun and relaxing applications until upgrading to the iPhone XR and realizing their is no support for my device for full screen and the view it’s currently in is smaller than my previous 8 Plus playable screen size.
WAY TOO MANY ADS
by Kakrum on 2018/12/04 17:13
Used to LOVE this game. But now, I have to watch a video ad before AND AFTER every song I play? Are you kidding me? I spend more time watching adds than playing. Not worth it. Deleting app.
Ads
by imnotgiving on 2018/12/04 16:47
I would love the game if I didn’t have an ad every time I try to play something. Going to get a new app
Issues
by chickenugget_ on 2018/12/04 03:15
I really only use the app to do the Daily Challenges. My only issue is that the pause button is at the bottom of the screen where you’re tapping your note. Every time I go to hit a 4 note I accidentally pause the game which makes me lose points because when you press resume it automatically starts and it’s to late to hit the following notes in time. Really irritating.
Kind of aggravating at times
by wellsyaknow on 2018/12/03 23:25
It wouldn’t be so bad if you could change some settings...for instance...I’m using an iPad and every time I hit the 4 notes at the same time it pauses...I think I paused the game at least 15 times in row ...other than that the adds are really high but the gameplay helps to pass the time and they did the songs very well
Great
by Jasburge88 on 2018/12/02 23:22
I only play one song. It’s faded. I’ve always loved that song and now I get to play it.
Won’t change me instruments
by Spinningblackfan on 2018/12/02 21:53
I’m just stuck on one echoing crap keyboard and it won’t let me change!!! I already hate this crap app
Good
by mivrfovefkjsgbrj on 2018/12/02 17:57
Good
Too many ads
by LittleFangMyNigga on 2018/12/02 17:55
There are so many ads I couldn’t even breathe. Everything costs money and it’s just hard to use in general. You can’t even play the songs you wrote without paying for them with in-game coins. Don’t get this app. I would recommend piano tiles, it’s kind of the same thing but less rage inducing.
UGHHH!!! WHAT THE FRICK, SMULE?
by Snackassassin on 2018/12/02 17:19
Srsly. Smule. Up ur game. You are better than this. (NOT!!!) there are so many ads! It's like a second after you finish a song, an ad pops up. It gets SO ANNOYING. Also, there are barely any songs that are free anymore. There are only like 5 in the free songs section. WHYYYYY SMULE. And guess what that means? LOTS OF SONGS THAT COST COINS..There's vip, witch costs MONEY.There are songs, which cost MONEY. and when I try to get via it adds up. How you say? Well. I try to buy VIP, and I don't get it, But... ITS STILL PAYING ME. AND I DONT EVEN GET VIP. There is so much stuff that is wrong with this MONEY-OBSESSED GAME. PLZ FREKIN FIX IT OR IM DELETING THIS GAME FOR GOOD.
X support
by FelRobPauDip on 2018/12/01 07:08
iPhone X came out a year ago and there's no full screen for it! What's the devs even doing, XS is already out.
Do I See Bots?
by Avery bondurant on 2018/12/01 05:54
This app is good. But I have two things to say. 1, I get a lot of ads. (In which some apps I like to see or inspire me) and 2, when I go to the daily challenge, I see many people with profile photos and they are in the top 10 or so. I think they are boys because they are on the leaderboard EVERY SINGLE DAY. I try to get on but I HAVENT GOTTEN ON IT ONCE. Pls don’t use bots anymore. :(
Fun but too expensive & amount of ads is ridiculous
by Help84 on 2018/12/01 02:33
I downloaded this app again after not using it for several years....I remembered it was really Fun... in fact in the past I purchased a couple of songs ... to my surprise I no longer have access to those unless I pay a very high subscription fee . Wondering about the free version ? is not a game with ads... is just ads with a short game in between
Disappointing
by Swiita on 2018/12/01 01:42
Used to love this app. Now every time I try to do a difficult song, when I use 4 fingers it asks me if I want to resume. I can’t even get through one song and the adds. Don’t even get me started on the ridiculous amounts of adds. Deleting. Which is a shame. I used to really like this game
>:(
by Yourboi🙌 on 2018/11/30 02:49
I got this “game” and got a free trial. Then I cancelled it the 3rd day. I looked at my bank account and there was an 8 dollar deduction. It’s not really the 8 dollars that gets me mad it’s the fact that it lied.
Terrible app
by savyana39 on 2018/11/30 02:30
This app is crazy expensive at 7.99 a WEEK, plus it doesn’t have any kind of teaching value. The App Store makes it very difficult to unsubscribe too, so it wasn’t until two charges showed up on my account from this that I realized what was going on. As a piano teacher, I do not recommend!
Full of garbage copies
by christonhan on 2018/11/29 13:24
It’s now filled with thousands of stupid copies of copies of copies of customized songs. We can rarely find the original. Please remove all songs submitted by users and remove the song creation feature.
Some stuff just too stupid to overcome
by Tim5489 on 2018/11/29 12:15
overall its a pretty fun app but a few things I honestly just hate is having to pay for a VIP account to play certain songs I mean comeon now and then you have to renew the account to keep playing the songs so why in the world would i wanna do that to play a few songs that I like? Another thing that I hate I hate is the fact that sometimes when I purchase a song it gives me this ''couldnt get resources'' response and thats total garbage I mean I have a good internet connection and it still doesnt work. So I waste my time watching a bunch of commercials to purchase a song that doesnt even work. Not trying to dis the app cuz I enjoy it but those two things cause soooo much frustration for me
Bad
by MellienLost on 2018/11/29 07:00
Need. Moore. Advertising.
Can’t even play it...
by 🐔🐍🐭🐑🐝 on 2018/11/29 06:41
Every time I try to tap three or more fingers, the game spdoes not sense it. When I tap four fingers to hit the notes, it pauses the game. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. It’s impossible to play now.
Needs support for IPhone X/XS/XS MAX/XR
by Musically User 30 on 2018/11/29 06:39
When ever I go in this app it only shows a bloc like an iPhone 6 and I don’t like and can you please support the app for newer apple devices
This app is a scam
by Crazycrafter231 on 2018/11/29 02:40
I thought I could play any song FOR FREE BUT NOPE the songs that are good cost money why just a waste of your time the only music that’s in that app for free is she boring old songs like marry had a little lamb and other dumb children songs DONT BUY IT WASTE OF YOUR TIME THE ADDS ARE JUST FAKE.
Love it
by Alphaomega7655 on 2018/11/29 02:39
It’s such a great game and I am addicted to it
Love it but some problems...
by The levels are very fast! on 2018/11/28 00:28
So I love the whole thing and stuff I love playing this on my phone but the thing is, on my iPad I’ve been having some problems. First when I’m playing a song on hard and I tap three fingers it always pops up the thing that says Go back to song book and resume and all that, another thing is there’s no many ads, when im going to play one of my songs that I’ve played before, it says you will get your reward after this message and yea those are some problem I’ve head and please dis these problems.
Awsomenessssssss❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
by beatiful 3455 on 2018/11/28 00:05
It is totally amazing and it is so fun!!!
Ads Everywhere
by Ossenkop1 on 2018/11/28 00:04
I hate it so much and I even played this when I was literally seven years old. I recently redownloaded the app after I felt like I should retry it after a few years and it got worse! No matter where you go, ads pop up. I get that they get money and publicity off of it but, after every song you play, you have to listen to an ad. If you want to play a free song, you have to watch an ad. I think this is okay but, when it comes to watching an ad after every song, I draw the line. I’m deleting this app as fast as I can. Would not recommend for use if you get stressed easily.
I like it a lot but one thing...

So I really like the game a lot it’s really fun to play but I have one thing to say... YOU NEED MORE FREE SONGS! Like %99 of them need vip or smula (I think that’s what it’s called) and there is only like %1 free and you just NEED more free ones seriously 😒 It’s boring playing the same ones over and over again and also I need help with hard mode because every time I use four fingers it pause and then it keeps being like “play faster” and please help me on how to fix this and but seriously PLEASE MAKE MORE SONGS FREE!!
Fun app!
by KKcrystalpheonix on 2018/11/26 21:43
I love this app and it’s really fun! The only thing that I find frustrating is that when I purchased a song with smoola, it doesn’t show up in the my songs section. To get the song I have to search it up. It kinda gets annoying. But overall, great app!👍
Great! Please read
by Labs are my LIFE on 2018/11/26 07:21
So, I’ve had this app for a while but I have a few issues: The songs cost WAY too much I mean it’s pretty hard to get smoola, I think it should be 15 smoola every song and for holidays it should be a discount so it costs 10. I hear little clicks in each song and they shouldn’t be there You should definitely come up with another update because the songs are getting kind of boring Otherwise the app is GREAT! And I definitely think you should download it and please fix the bugs and update it!
Terrible. App. Charge you money every time.
by Abbjax2 on 2018/11/26 02:21
I have cancelled my subscription every single time... but still get charged $8 over and over again. I have been charged for something I do not even use. The app is completely deleted off my phone and I am still getting charged.
I don’t like this any more sadly
by djjdjdjdhdyfyf on 2018/11/25 22:39
I used to love this game but every time I try to play a song an add pops up and it’s super annoying plus after the song another add pops up. It’s also sometimes really glitchy and when I’m doing the right fingering it says I’m doing it wrong 🙄
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
A promblem
by NathanBlox on 2018/11/25 19:38
Every time I do hard difficulty, every time I have to do 4 fingers, it always makes me pause and asks if I want to go back to change difficulty or whatever. It makes get less points then I really should be getting because every time I resume it says, play faster. Which doesn’t make sense. Can someone at least fix this problem.
Not worth downloading
by Johnnylego123 on 2018/11/25 09:00
SMULE IS TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ME!!!!!!!!!!! WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE ULTIMATE FURIFIED RAGE BOILING UNDERNEATH MY SKIN!!! I WILL NOT GIVE IN ANYMORE!!! IF YOU DON’T WANT TO WASTE MONEY THEN DO NOT EVEN DOWNLOAD THIS APP CAUSE TRUST ME YOU HAVE TO SPEND MONEY OR IT WONT ******* BE WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!! UGH GREEDINESS DISGUSTS ME!!!
Horrible money grubbers
by Legacy561 on 2018/11/25 03:46
$7.99 a week for full access what are they high? Netflix is cheaper than this game and you get more. Game use to be $7 a month.
DELETS SONGS

Crap
by amazonkingi on 2018/11/24 16:26
This app is crap everything is vip this the worst app I’ve ever played
It’s fine, but glitchy on the four-note
by B CopeDad on 2018/11/24 11:27
On the hard versions of songs, it will often pause the song if you hit four notes at once. When it unpauses, it tells you to play faster and gets rid of any multiplier you had, and often ruins your score. For instance, I was playing the nutcracker theme, in which you must simultaneously hit four notes multiple times, often in indirect succession, and I got a mere two stars because of it. As such, it gave me all but one star, so I have returned the favor.
Too many ads
by hugehippoh on 2018/11/24 08:01
Every time I click on a new song to play there is an ad, and immediately after I finish the song another pops up... Overall it’s getting redundant and ridiculous!
Great app, but ruined by adds
by Icedairplane95 on 2018/11/24 05:28
I used to love this app and i used it every day but now its overrun by ads. I can’t play a song without an ad after it.
There is only one problem...
by jungkook24 on 2018/11/24 05:17
Sometimes when I tap the screen with 4 fingers the menu opens up, and that keeps happening ALL the time. Because of that, I can’t play the musics I like. The game is really good, I really like it, but I can’t play the songs in the hard level!
Adds
by realDiblasio on 2018/11/24 04:56
Too many adds it wasn’t like that before but overall 3 stars
NO SMOOLAS

Whenever you do the four fingered thingy, the settings thingy pops up, you know what pops up if you click the pause button? Yea that pops up and it messes me up sooo much FIX THIS NOW
MOST RELAXING GAME I EVER PLAYED (I love it)

Stupid as can be
by danisthemandog on 2018/11/24 00:56
This app Smule Magic Piano is so ridiculous. If you just want to play a song without paying or watching a add they give the worst piano songs out there. Then for smoola,to get a good song like bohemian rhapsody and I didn’t want to spend money so I watched a video. The videos are 30 seconds. Then once I am finished with the video it says “You got 5 Smoola.” Then I check my smoola bar none added. And it is just the most boring game out there. So that is why this came is a piece of trash and the developers didn’t try hard enough. It is a scam of Piano Tiles, now Piano Tiles is awesome. Thanks for reading.
Why the heck is it slowing down?!
by HizzleBoo on 2018/11/23 21:34
I just downloaded this game and I have to admit,it was pretty fun. But I am super bad. Every time I get a key wrong it slows down! It’s just super annoying! And also you have to muck ads. Every time I finish a song,there is always an ad. So that is all that I want you to fix.
Used to be AMAZING
by WordsOfTruth💯 on 2018/11/23 19:14
But then they got greedy there is a commercial after and before every song I reinstalled and logged into my account on new phone it took away ALL of the songs I had gotten over the years. Just so disappointed in what they have done to this app.
Songs...
by JuJu_Rosey on 2018/11/23 17:46
So I really enjoy this game, but once I finish all the songs in my songbook, I have to hunt down other songs to play. There are few free songs that I like, and it's really hard to get smules. Please add more songs for us to master every time we level up, along with more smules every time we complete an achievement and/or level up, than just the regular 1 smule every achievement and level. Please read this and do something about it. Thank you
Stupid because my mom won’t let me play
by Ian rhe awsome on 2018/11/23 16:09
Most stupid game I want to play then because of YOU yes YOU THE CREATERS my mom won’t let me play it because the free trial! About the free trial you have to pay after the trial witch makes the game STUPID!!!!

by too much money i wantlolsssss on 2018/11/22 21:57
Every time I get to a new song an inappropriate ad shows up! I am also seeing the majority of the songs cost Smoolah no real Moolah. Smule is becoming a money hungry company like the others. I am going to delete this and hopefully they’ll fix this. Very disappointing I am sad to say😡😢😤.

Do not Play
by ajoshplafif on 2018/11/22 17:28
This game keeps making me mess up. Every time I tap once it says I tapped 3 times, and I don’t like it when thing like that happen. One of my friends raged because of that.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.

I did not agree to pay any amount. I cannot delete it
by Nawlins Dee on 2018/11/22 03:39
I did not agree to pay any amount. I cannot delete it! I don’t want it. I’m not using it. I don’t know why without my agreeing to pay anything, it won’t let me delete it!!!!! I don’t know how to get rid of it.
Very Frustrating
by Pop rock 101 on 2018/11/22 01:00
For me, I like this game. However, whenever I try to do a difficulty level hard, whenever I get to a note that I have to use four fingers it will usually pop-up the thing that has like resume, restart etc. I’ve never gotten through a difficulty level hard and not have that thing show up at least once when trying to play four fingers. It frustrates me and when that happens it usually also make loose xp and not get 3 stars when I should. Fix this please.
Daily challenges
by raegan hi hj on 2018/11/21 19:09
This game is sort of fun it isn’t the best game ever... I’m super competitive so I really only do the daily challenges, but I really don’t use the game for anything else

TOO MANY ADS!!!!!
“Free songs”
by Monkeys are bae❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ on 2018/11/21 02:55
I was playing magic piano and for the most part I loved it until i clicked to play a “free” song and it took 25 coins away. I worked extremely hard and do not think I should have lost them for a “free” song. Also I find it highly annoying that to play a song adds pop up everywhere. I’m consider deleting the app.
Not what it once was
by Chryss1979 on 2018/11/20 20:07
I liked the game, good selection of songs, for both premium and free. Seems there are hardly any free songs anymore, all my old free ones can no longer be played without paying for them. And now there are sooo many ads. Not really worth playing, anymore. Such a shame, will not be spending anymore money on it.
Some Glitches
by Jenny alagha on 2018/11/20 17:12
Well, This game is good but.. on faded it said go faster and I was. And all the other songs said it too. Maybe you can Fix it... Maybe it’s a Glitch or not. One of them said Go slower Even and I was... ^.^ Well I hope you can Update it or fix. Thank you.
TOO MANY ADS!
by Write-a-bug on 2018/11/20 13:22
I used to play this game all the time a while ago and I thought I would start playing again. But now there are ads after EVERY song! And you have to watch an ad to play the free songs! It used to not be like that. What happened? Why so many ads?
Its great but
by j.kai on 2018/11/20 06:00
This app is great and i love it, but theres one thing that would make it perfect. It would be great if you could favorite songs, aka send them to a new tab right above the My Songs tab. This would be great because i have a lot of songs i don't play anymore, ever since you added the composer i just got a bunch of undertale songs and now i only play those. It would be great if you added this.
Used to be a great app, but has since become almost unusable without paying.
by HNB02 on 2018/11/19 21:02
I've seen these kinds of reviews with other people, where they have purchased the app in the past, loved the game then, and have since deleted and redownload the app only to find that it had fallen into the hole of nickel and ding you for every little thing, then playing an ad every chance they get, that many other once great apps had done before it. While I would like to say that I am not one of those people now leaving this review, I can't. In the past it was truly a great app, that brought me to want to learn more about music and learning the piano, and eventually moving on to other instruments, but now it fails to bring that aspect to the table. The ads can sometimes make it infuriating to play as, if you are playing a free song, you must watch an ad before it will even download, and then after EVERY song you are forced to watch an ad before being allowed to return to the "songbook". And with the very scarce variety of free songs provided, you are essentially being forced to pay for coins or memberships in order to get anything new out of the app. From what I have collected in the week since redownload into this game is that smile has begun to value customer satisfaction less, and profit more, which for the record, wouldn't necessarily be such a bad thing, except for the fact that they have gone overkill on the profit aspect and completely dropped the customer satisfaction (the more important) aspect. I hope the developers actually read these reviews and improve these issues in upcoming updates.
They just won’t listen.
by CaraH628 on 2018/11/19 18:50
So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
A Fun App, Too Many Ads
by DesJ_ on 2018/11/19 17:21
I think that the app is a good way to spend free-time. I find it fun and relaxing to play my favorite songs, but what I don’t like about it is the constant ads. Every time I get finished with a song, it’s always something trying to get me to download an app, and I get that, but it’s annoying after it appears sixty times, practically each with a video. I wouldn’t mind an ad after every three or so songs, but I really don’t feel like waiting to play another song.
Too many ads
by nic.bags on 2018/11/19 05:38
This is a great app, even with the copious amount of songs you can only play if you buy them. But ads after every single song you play?! I play no more than 4 songs every time I open the app because the excessive ads are just too annoying
Too many ads
by Ced1045 on 2018/11/19 04:00
I do one piece and before and after is a 30 sec ad
Too many adds
by iconic._.vibes(insta on 2018/11/19 03:19
The app is great!!! It has a large variety of songs to choose, and master. The only thing that I can’t stand are the adds! I hate adds and there is always an add before and after I play a song. It would be way better if I was able to encounter an add fore every 4 songs I play.
Used to like it
by salt^3 on 2018/11/18 17:25
Used to be a good app. I had this app when I was younger and loved it and now they want you to spend money to play a fake piano. Also every time I play on the hard difficulty it puts up the pause menu like every three seconds it’s pretty annoying and I’m very disappointed
Composing
by Bre🤩 on 2018/11/18 05:39
I was so excited when I first found out that you could compose on this app!! 🥳 Then, I started to compose a song. I realized most notes that are needed for all songs were not there. I was very disappointed with this app.🥺 Please update this app, I will bring up my review if this is fixed. Until then, I think I might as well delete this app from my phone until then.🎼 I definitely don’t recommend this app. My apologies for the negative comments. If there is another way to fix this problem, please respond ASAP, and let me know what to do. Thank you so much!!🥰
Used to be very cool and enjoyable now 2 ads per song!
by DrunkenDervish on 2018/11/18 04:16
This used to be a real fun game that I could play with my daughter but now the ads are unbearable. Usually two per song and you no longer gain points for watching the ads. This game has become a rip off. Also if you return to the game after deleting it all your progress is lost.
I used to love it...
by @miggysbiggestfan on 2017/12/01 21:09
So I've had this app probably since I was 15 when I first got my iPhone 6, and it was addicting up until now. Okay so last night every single song I have showed 3 stars next to each level of difficulty that I have played at, and just a few minutes ago when I went to open the app, ALL of my songs showed no stars highlighted, no scores, no nothing. Like I just bought them or composed them and haven't even started playing them yet. I am really angry. 😡😡 Also there are just too many ads. 👎🏻 Every ten seconds after I finish a song, a stupid ad pops up about some coloring book or food game and it's really annoying. 😤 Also I really hate how the majority of everyone's favorite songs nowadays can't be played unless you have a VIP membership accessibility. It's ridiculous. I feel that VIP membership to play a song on Magic Piano should be banned, because you know, there are not very many VIP members in the world. I'm seriously thinking about deleting this app from my phone for permanent. I've not only had to deal with the troubles I stated above, but I've also had to deal with the app freezing up, songs I compose that won't let me publish no matter what I do, and Daily Challenge songs taking decades to load and then refreshing the app only for it to crash every time I reopen it. It's getting really frustrating and I can't take it any longer. 🚫
nice, but you just went down the drain.
by impactfalls on 2017/09/05 02:46
Sorry but I just couldn't keep this for even a night. all the songs that were free back then now cost coins and money. theres barely anymore free songs, they now all either cost 25-75 coins or they require a vip membership. I liked the addition where you can compose your own songs because you could express your creativity as well as have a wider variety of songs to play, but this has gone too far down the wrong path. I had magic piano like three times before, the only reason i ever deleted them was to empty space until i could get them again. Today i downloaded it expecting just the same amount of content with it as i did before, but I was so disappointed to find out it was the opposite. This app used to be fun, you had a large variety of free songs to play with more limited amounts of ads, but now every time you make a single move of your index finger you have to see an advertisement of a beach girl game or some pattern coloring app. There's only like 8 songs that show up when I look at the "free songs" category, but every other category is like 98% currency-based. this company's only care now is money, and nothing else. When i had the app a few months ago, I was actually able to do things, but now I can't do anything on this app anymore without having to pay money.
$mule.. it’s all about the $$$
by Samiam1023 on 2018/04/13 00:43
I loved this game for a long time but over the last year or more the ads are ridiculous and every time before you start a song .. there’s an ad.. finish a song... another ad... select another song.. an ad.. and on and on. I paid for a one week trial and didn’t realize it continued charging me. I originally signed up for 7.99 a month only to find out a couple months later they were billing me 2.99 a week! Being able to compose songs was a cool idea until I finished a level and earned 200 coins... purchased a newer song for 75 coins that was nothing more than a few taps and that was it. I didn’t get the song I paid for and that’s happened many of times. When someone submits a composure I think someone at the company should review it first before putting it out there for people to waste their money. Lastly... I have maxed out on levels so all the songs I rack points up on are of no use since the app is now not even giving me credit so unless I want to pay for VIP I have no way to earn what little reward you get for completing a level. What started out as my absolute favorite game is now nothing more than a money sucker and it doesn’t appear that it’ll improve. Great game gone to the deleted aps of my account! They aren’t getting anymore of my money!
Went downhill
by lencofam on 2017/12/11 05:07
I used to have this app as a very young child, and the only reason why I deleted it was because I got frustrated at its difficulty. Just recently, the game crossed my mind and I decided to re-download it and give it another go. Because I’ve gotten a lot better at video games over the years, the difficulty of the game was no longer a problem. There, were, however, new problems with the game that I didn’t expect to encounter. For starters, the game has WAY to many ads. I can’t play a single song, not even a short one like Happy Birthday, without being forced to watch a stupid, boring video that I don’t care about. I got this game because I remembered how fun it was, but it’s kind of hard to have fun when 90% of the game is just you watching ads for other games. Second of all, this game is basically begging you for money at this point. The fact that some of the songs are only available to VIP users is just stupid. Do they really expect us to spend actual money on a stupid piano game that we have on our phones? Besides from that, every achievement you can accomplish in the game (leveling up, getting new songs, etc.) can be bought with just a few bucks. The fact that literally everything in this game has been put up for sale is terrible. Well, that’s my review
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻It Is Awesome!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
by Hambo777 on 2017/06/22 13:04
This Game Is So Awesome And Addicting!!! 🙂 If You Are Wondering, Hmm... Should I Use Some Of My Bootyfull Storage On This Game?? 😐 The Answer In My Opinion (Like Everyone's) 😂 Has To Be A Yes!!! 👍🏻 😃 Well If You Are Wondering If It Is Challenging... 😐 Well Of Course It Is!!!! 😃 In My Opinion, I Love Challenging Games! 🙂 Also If They Are Challenging Enough They Can Make Me Mad! 😂 I Am Almost 12 So That Is Funny Because When I Get Mad It Is Hilarious 😂 So I Need To Stop Talking About Me And Talk More About The Game... 😂 So When You Play On A Tablet Or A iPad Or Anything Like Tablets Or iPads And You Play To Many Songs Your Fingers Can Start Hurting!! 😱 Also, You Can Press Pause After You Have Done The Song Once And It Will Say "Learn This Song" 👍🏻 When You Press It, It Shows The Creator Of The Song Playing It. 👍🏻 Just To Tell You They Play It Perfectly!!! 👍🏻 And Also If You Get Into The Menu Where You Can Pick Your Difficulty (Easy, Medium, Or Hard), At The Right, Top Corner There Is Three Dots ⏺⏺⏺ If You Press The Three Dots There Is A Setting That Says "Practice" Press That And Every One Of The Notes Will Be A One Note 👍🏻 Ok That's It For Me Today #AutoCorrectMasterOut 😂
Horrible ads!
by Mefens on 2017/12/06 13:51
I’ve always enjoyed playing magic piano. Over the years, I’ve had a membership and at other times did not. Currently, I don’t feel I play it enough to justify paying. With that being said, I have noticed some things that make this app not very enjoyable. 1. It takes FOREVER to earn smule coins. Which makes the app not much fun because I feel like I get to play the same songs over and over again. Not cool and not challenging. 2. Under “my songs” I have a bunch of songs which I have either bought or had while having a membership. At this point without clicking on each one there is no way to tell if I’m able to play it or if I need more smule. Confusing. 3. This is the most annoying of all. The ads that I see (which I do feel there are too many of) are not ones that I wish for my kids to see. There are ones that show a doll that is getting beat up and bloodied and tells you you “kick it’s a**” and that this will “relieve your stress”, really?! Not the message I want to send. There are others I have seen that are similar, zombies I believe, and there is a lot of blood. I don’t expect or desire to see these ads, ever, yet alone, over and over again. That needs to be changed or I will have to delete this once great app.
Ads. Are getting. Annoying.
by Apersonthatistillknow:) on 2018/11/10 17:46
Have been addicted to this game for years. It’s fun, it’s relaxing, it’s challenging. Find a song you love playing? Open it up to see the notes and learn to play it in real life. Helps you learn to move your fingers individually and keep time for playing instruments in the real world. Only 2 problems: you can’t really play this game much at all unless you pay the $2-$3 a month fee. Coins are ridiculously hard to get (like 1 or 2 every time you level up), and songs are ridiculously expensive (25 if homemade, 50 if appmade). Sometimes it doesn't even remember you bought a song! Which is why I pay for it (and don’t regret paying for it)... only now I get a smule ad after playing each song that takes a while to load and doesn't usually even play. I don’t pay for the app to watch ads. I already know the Sing app and others exist and also already know I don’t want them (yet at least). I was perfectly content with this app, would’ve rated it 5 stars despite having to pay, but now the ads are a constant nuisance and playing the game can now be annoying, especially when I’m trying to relax.
Fingers too big?
by Jen Reeves on 2017/09/25 23:10
So I've only had the app for a couple of hours and I signed up for the free seven day trial. I love the selection of songs, and I played a couple on easy mode and thought they were quite fun. But if I change the difficulty above easy, there are times when I'm asked to hit three notes at once. The two dots off to the right are so close together I can't hit them both at the same time. I put my two fingers together as tightly as possible and tap the screen and it's only registering that I'm hitting one of the dots. I don't have big hands, I'm a woman of average height and average weight so my fingers are not chubby or unusual in any way. I feel like I am missing something. Like there Nice to be an obvious solution then I'm just not noticing. Especially because I don't see anyone else complaining about this problem. Maybe there should be settings I can change to make the dots a little bit further apart so that my fingers can hit them, but I don't see anything like that anywhere. So I really like the song selection and I like the concept of the game and the sound is very nice, so I would give it a higher rating if I could actually Play it above easy. Until I figure out what's wrong and how to fix it this app is useless to me.
Ads, ads, ads, and ads.
by truckload of ads on 2018/11/22 06:21
Jesus Christ where do I even begin? Ok well I’ve had this game for a few years now and I swear to god it’s never been this bad. I always exit a song just before it ends to avoid watching an ad, because they’re literally after EVERY song. Not to mention before AND after free songs, which to be fair there’s a lack of, but I’m not sure I could consider that a good thing either. I have a lot of songs, over 131. So explain to me why there’s only 131 songs in the “my songs” section? Anytime I buy a new song, it doesn’t get added to the list, a problem which just recently started happening to me. There’s no way I’m gonna look up a song every time I wanna play it when it’s supposed to be added to the list for the convenience of the player. THIS BUG NEEDS TO BE FIXED. I tried looking up the songs again, and playing them through again, even beating them on all difficulties, to try and see if it got them added to the list. And it did.... until I closed the app and reopened it that is. Did I also mention that there’s way too many ads? I did? Well the game will shove it in your face again. Something needs to be done, this app is no longer of good quality from the bugs and there’s too many ads, earning smule undeserved money, the company is solely based on greed now.
WHAT THE HECK SMULE
by I'm a Artist on 2018/04/19 02:09
So I get you guys are a big app now, and I have had Magic Piano since it first came out, years ago. I used it when there was only basic songs like Twinkle Twinkle little Star. I’ve kept it all these years, and never have I gotten so many ads. I have over 150 songs, do you know how many Ads I had to watch? Plus free songs. I also did TapJoy stuff, and never once got my Smula (should be almost 6800 since I did ones you actually had to pay for also) I’ve reported it and then was told it was “Lost” but it said I had done it. Of course I got a little mad. Yet, I still have the app. How am I re-payed? ADS AFTER EVERY SONG! I like to play the songs but it’s annoying when a ad comes in every two seconds. As before I can play to ad after I play then repeat. It’s used to be reasonable, 1 ad after every 3-4 songs. Sometimes 5 if you watched a Smula ad. Don’t you guys already have Millions just from all of your apps combined? You guys are getting greedy. Also the VIP thing. Why are all the good songs VIP? The daily challenges used to be VIP songs, which was cool. But now it’s songs you can go and buy. Tired of it smule. I’ll keep the game and I wish to have my 6800 Smula, but I’m not going to force it. And PLEASE KEEP THE ADS ON A DOWN LOW!
Terrible
by tifpow on 2018/03/21 05:36
This app has gotten worse and worse. There is very rarely any free content created. I have a large library of songs that I accumulated when the app had a bigger variety of free songs, but even I get bored of playing those. So, does that mean I buy a VIP membership? Of course not! It’s super overpriced! To put it into perspective, a year of VIP is $40 which is about as much as a good quality Nintendo DS game. Not only does the Nintendo DS game have more to offer (offense intended) you also get to play it forever. It’s one payment of $40, not $40 a year like Magic Piano. Who in their right mind would buy a VIP subscription to Magic Piano? So, that’s off the table. I should just play the songs I have and get over it right? Or maybe save up smoola to get more. First of all, smoola takes forever to earn. I’ve been playing this game on and off for years and I got enough smoola to buy one song ONCE. Not to mention I had accumulated a lot of smoola at a point (probably over 100) and I opened the app one day and it was gone! The only reason I gave this app any stars at all is because if you’re playing one of the few decent songs you can, it’s really really fun. But it’s a terrible app that begs for money from us and lost what made it so great.
Timing....too slow...???!
by lilpkrmnstr on 2018/04/30 04:47
I love this app, but the one thing I can't stand is when it tells me I'm being too slow.. but I'm trying to play the song the way it sounds.. And it always seems to want to rush me. I'd rather be able to play the song the way it feels in the way it sounds rather than having the app tell me I'm playing too slow. Messing up is one thing, but having a longer pause at the end of that set because you're playing it with feeling is another. I think that should be fixed. Make room for a real or with feeling pause. Also.. I LOVE the community section. However, I think people just messing around makes it hard to find the people who have actually created an amazing piece. That's frustrating. If you want the quality of the app, you pay for it. Have a passion for piano music, you pay for it. People who love it will pay for it. I would love to get rid of the “junk” on it... the songs people create that make no sense. They should have to be approved or something. Keep the crap out.
UUGGHH SO ANNOYING!! ADS?!?
by Pookeylookey on 2018/10/31 12:14
So many ads!! I know it helps the company, but there’s so much to were I get out of the game because of them. Don’t get me wrong, I love the game (kinda addicted) but I redownloaded the game the other day, and I don’t remember the game having so much ads. I mean cmon. I get on the app, ad, when I pick a song that I’ve already watched 40 million ads for, ANOTHER AD, and even when I get done playing a song..guess what, ANOTHER AD!!! cmon smule, where’s the game that I enjoyed without getting all these stupid ads. Plus, it’s like the same ads everyday. I’m okay with ads (because every game has them). Buttttt when they interrupt EVERY SINGLE TIME I PLAY, then I’m either gonna delete the game I love, or give y’all a review and hope y’all address and fix the problem. :) Yes, I understand y’all benefit from ads, but surely for how many people play yalls apps, and how many ads y’all have on a game in general, I think y’all are good on money. Please Please PlEaSe fix the PrObLeM!!!!! LOVE AND KIND, LAYTHEN!!! :) P.s- I love the game, and the games y’all produce. But, it’s basically all the stikin ads that I have to deal with just on this game. I hope y’all can fix this. Have a great day! :)
No longer worth my time; TRASH
by Niniroman on 2018/12/08 05:54
I never spend the time to review, however my disappointment in the evolution of this game pushed me to do so. I first played magic piano around 6-7 years ago and I absolutely loved it. There were plenty of accessible songs and I would earn a nice classical piece every time I leveled up. There were plenty of songs to choose from and I did not mind spending hard earned coins to gain popular songs like Mario’s theme song and Beethoven Sonatas. The amount of ads was reasonable and felt like an acceptable exchange for the playtime they provided. Now it is trash. As others have commented, there are ads before and after playing one song (most of the time). You get free songs for leveling up much less frequently and when you do they are not very desirable (I.e very short happy birthday). Even with all that ad watching, there are only 8 free songs, and most songs are for VIP members only. I loved this game for the classical music and there is barely access to any classical pieces for free anymore. I am extremely disappointed with the direction of this company. I do not recommend their products. And hope others will take notice and do the same. I hope they change for the better after seeing the many complaints here.
AD AND BUG/GLITCH INFESTED APP!!
by Alcrex0260 on 2017/11/15 03:31
Used to like the game but maybe if they added an instant replay feature pianist can see where they might have messed up, and also there’s a bug or glitch that makes the songs I purchased with smolda coins via search, the only songs that show up in the “my songs” section is the songs that the app created. It’s really annoying when I can’t play the songs I spent a long time watching ads to get. And also sometimes I sit through a 30-50 second ad and I don’t even get the coins for it, um..... WHATTTTT?!?!?!? I used to really like this game. I played it for hours without any ads and it was fun and enjoyable and all bugs were squashed, but now we have ads around every corner, bug nests everywhere and ads with sexual content, um excuse me but (no offense intended to Smule) who do you think you are?! It’s an app rated 4+ so there should be content that’s appropriate for 4+ aged people. UNACCEPTABLE!! How would you feel, developers of Smule, if your child was playing an app and encounters an ad containing sexual content? I would feel like a bad parent! And if more and more people feel the app makes them feel like bad parents, they’ll delete the app and you’ll loose money! Then what will you do? Just think about that.
Great Game... but also some honesty
by lSIRsmokeALOTl on 2018/03/02 20:42
Alright, so I would like to start by stating that I absolutely love this game as a game, but I've come across some shady business practices from Smule considering their billing agreement. I did the one week trial, loved it and then paid for another. I decided I needed to not pay for the subscription for personal finance reasons, so I canceled my VIP membership. Low and behold they charged me for VIP the next week, so I removed PayPal from my payment methods on iTunes. Funny thing is, even after cancelling the subscription and removing PayPal as a payment method they continued to charge me for four more consecutive weeks. I had to claim fraudulent charges through my bank to get the payments to stop. I'm not sure if this was a mistake or shady business practices, but make sure you manually stop the recurring charges through your bank if you want to stop the VIP membership. That is honestly the only reason I gave this game three stars. If not for that singular incident I would definitely have rated it 5 stars. Great game! Love it! But I'm going to be uninstalling it after my experience.
Scam
by Greek American on 2018/07/19 03:07
I used to love this app, but now it’s just disappointing. I opened the app for the first time in about a year yesterday, and all of the thirty something songs I had ever purchased and played were gone. Even a song that I bought last night was gone by this morning. It’s pretty much impossible to get coins without purchasing them with real money, and I wasn’t going to spend that much time watching ads. Another horrible change that I’ve noticed is the increase in ads. A year ago, all of the songs in the free section used to actually be free. But now, you have to watch an ad before playing one. Even if you want to change the difficulty, you have to watch an ad. Ads never used to be apparent in the app unless you watched them for coins, but now they pop up after you play almost any song, even if you have actually purchased it. After reading a lot of reviews, I am positive that everything that is happening to me is not a unique glitch, and is probably a scam put into place by Smule so they can earn more money. Don’t waste your time trying to make good use of this app. It’s not worth it. There are plenty of other much better versions out there.
Time for a change!
by On the second day on 2017/08/10 18:03
I've had Smule for about three years now and have noticed major changes in the downward direction, sometimes I ask myself why do I still play....why because it is fun after you get through the extremely loud commercials. Some commercials can last as long as 30 seconds and they are now using commercials with sexual orientation and I heard the F word this week on a new commercial. I hope Smule doesn't think only adults use this app because I know several minors that use this. Usually you have to listen to two commercials before playing a song which is tiresome. As for the new composers feature I personally do not care for it because all it does is make about 20 songs of the same song and when you finally get a free song it'll give you a duplicated song that you already have, just made by someone else. it takes a long time sometimes to get a free song even when it asks you would you like a free song today?... and then they don't give you one! I will not pay an annual membership to play this game. Smule needs to get it together and make this app fun for everyone.
So. Many. Freaking. Ads.
by LittleNerdyElephant on 2018/01/11 01:03
Ugh, BEFORE and AFTER I play a song, I have to watch an ad. I can’t X out of it, because then I just close out of the app and lose my progress, and end up repeating what I tried and failed to do before. I give it three stars, mainly because it is a great app overall, with fun songs and options, xp points after every song you play that you save to level up, rewards, etc. I think it would be such a better game if there weren’t as many advertisements! Also, almost everything is too pricey. It is hard to get through the game without purchasing something. There are only eight free songs I know of, without being a VIP, and once you complete those, you kinda have to just replay them until you level up and get more smoola to buy a song. I think this game has potential, but please add in more free songs and lower the amount of ads I see, because honestly it is super annoying, and I want to delete it but I would lose all my progress. If you make these simple changes, my star rating will go up, and I guarantee others will too.
The glitch😤
by I❤️EDM on 2018/06/23 19:57
Overall I think this app is fun and I like that there’s a ton of songs to choose from. But I’m writing this review because of one problem in particular I’m having. When I play on the hard level, (using up to four fingers) often for some unknown reason it will keep pausing even though I do NOT hit the pause button. This happens a lot now (sometimes ten times a song...no exaggeration!) Also it’s started to glitch out right into other apps when I’m right in the middle of a song. It’s getting very annoying. Please fix this! (A month later) Something just popped up on my screen on how to make it stop pausing right in the middle so many times of every song. I did it and it worked. Thanks! I’ll bump it up to four stars now. I’d have a better chance of giving it five stars if there weren’t soooo many ads (An ad after every song you play and sometimes you’re required to watch an ad before you can even begin playing a song) and if the songs didn’t cost so much.
AWESOMENESS, MOSTLY‼️‼️🎹🎼🎶🎵
by Sookie words and more on 2017/08/18 20:23
Magic Piano is SO fun but also SO too funny‼️‼️I'm reading reviews and SMH!! Many if not most of us are far from Bach or Mozart but Magic Piano gives us an opportunity to at least feel like we can actually play a piano!! Realistically, though, NOT!! Now I hear ya about these darn, often occurring, loud ads, they are quite troublesome but at least you can get smules but 1 is not equal to each ad in my opinion. Now granted I love it when I play a song and people in the same room can recognize and identify the song I'm actually trying to play!! I did learn much from reading the reviews in regards to options within the app. such as you can practice, pause, play songs people like us have composed vs. actual composers and so on so I think I can enjoy the experience even better. It's always a plus and boost to the old ego when you play well enough to to unlock more songs and level up!! Thumbs up for me👍🏼👌🏽😜👏🏼👏🏼🎹🎧🎤
This is my favorite game in the whole world
by Wifey290 on 2018/01/13 08:16

Im so bitter
by Ɩıŋɖʂɛყ on 2018/08/02 04:03
I’m so incredibly disappointed in this app. I used to have it a long time ago and I loved it SO MUCH. it was so soothing and I would play it every night before I went to sleep. But that was on my old iPad, and now it’s incompatible with the app. I had never played it with my phone cause I thought the screen would be too play to play properly (I was right), so I never got it. Then I saw an ad for it and I thought “that would be fun to try again!” WRONG. I’m so mad. The first thing it’s greets me with is “you wanna but a membership that’s way overpriced?”. Then after that I tried to play a song and was bombarded with SO MANY ADS!! Also, I tried to play a song from the little mermaid that had the voice along with it, and it WAS NOT synced up at all!! I used to play the ones with the voice all the time, so I know how it works. I wasn’t doing it wrong. When did this app become such a sell out?!? Literally like 3/4th of the app is all ads. It’s completely ridiculous. I’m so disappointed and frustrated. I just wanted that soothing experience again. Listen Smule, you don’t need all this crap to sell your app. You’re just making people mad. Please give up back what we want.
Glitchy and too many ads
by luka / ルーカ on 2018/06/13 03:05
I’m not too sure if this has happened to anybody, but I’ve recently been going into the app only to find that the songs I’ve purchased are not appearing. Typically, the “My Songs” tab only showed the songs you’ve earned when you’ve leveled up, and took a few seconds to show the songs you’ve bought. Now the songs I’ve bought don’t show up at all, and if I want to play a certain song I have to look it up. Super annoying since I have the tendency to scroll and pass something I want to play without thinking about it first. On the other hand, the ads are just too much. After almost every song I play that has a difficulty (not going into the section where it says “Practice) an ad pops up. Having the ads when you are trying to earn Smoola without playing a song makes sense, but having it after every song played is just flat out tedious. Aside from the glitches and ads, the app is pretty fun to play around with. If it didn’t have these problems, I’d probably be on it more often, but the app is slowly being ruined for me.
Too many Ads now! Poor song selection
by Ashlish on 2017/10/16 04:12
I'm finally irritated enough to write this review. This use to be my favorite app, hands down. So fun and included challenges and current music. However, now there are so many ad disruptions. Playing a new tune, first an ad....playing a song you have already paid for, first an ad.... playing a free song made by another user, first an ad. It's ridiculous. Now, I barely play it, unless I have time and patience to sit through five ads in less than ten minutes. Total sell out move, btw Smule. I wouldn't mind buying it, but a monthly fee is charged with an auto subscription, or you have to sign up for a slippery trial offer. Not a good deal. Also, there use to be new songs made by Smule that were free. Now, it's the same songs over and over made by different users-Chasing Cars, Gravity Falls Theme, Hokage's Death, Hallelujah, What a Wonderful World.....seriously! It's been those songs for at least a year now. Change it up a bit and I don't mean different Smule user composers. That comes off pretty cheap and makes me wonder what I would get from allowing you to charge my card every month if I signed up.
There are things that need to be improved
by MinecraftMermaids👍 on 2018/11/25 20:54
I really do like the game a lot, which may seem weird considering my 3-star rating. It’s just there are a few things about this game that make it less enjoyable. One: how hard it is to make Smoola. Honestly I’ve just given up on leveling entirely because I’m only getting 1 smoola every time I level up! You may say that you’re making up for it by giving us songs when we level up instead of Smoola, but I’m sorry, not all of us WANT to play classic songs. It was much better when you got 25 Smoola for leveling up, because it felt more rewarding and we could actually get the songs we want. Two: WAYYYYYY too many ads. I don’t want to see an ad every time I finish playing a song. I’ve actually had to find ways to avoid getting the ads just so I don’t have to watch them, but then I don’t get the XP for the song I just played. Maybe you should just leave the ads in the get more Smoola area. Three (and this is the biggest one in my opinion): The fact that it pauses any time I press the screen with four fingers. Ok, it makes sense that the pause screen would be sensitive if I push hard on the screen, but it’s doing it almost every single time I use four fingers, making it almost IMPOSSIBLE to play certain songs and enjoy them because it’s pausing every two seconds. Maybe you should make it so that the pause screen isn’t so sensitive to touch and there’s just an actual button to pause it, because this is getting really annoying.
It is okay, BUT could be better!!!
by Twinkies5everrr on 2018/02/16 05:58
I believe that Magic Piano is a good app. It is fun and creative.., and I really like the fact that people have the opportunity to compose songs ^-^... however, there are some huge problems about this app -.-... To begin with, there are SERIOUSLY WAYYYYY too many advertisements. (No exaggeration) There is an ad EVERY single time I finish a song. Also, when I select a free song (Or even one of mY songs!¡!) to play, an ad/video pops up. I think this is very annoying and makes me a lottt less interested to play the game. Another problem is that since a lot of the songs are not free, it is really hard to buy songs when you barely have any smoolas. It is so hard to get smoolas because (i don't know if this is just me) every time i complete those free offers to get smoolas, it NEVER works. Back in the olden days where the compose magic piano update was long gone, the offers would actually work and reward me... Magic Piano was not that bad a while ago, but now, its progress is going downhill :(
Helpful ideas!!!!
by JHONOSAURUS REX on 2018/05/16 01:29
I think that this is a very fun and creative app, but only when people stop copying the same song from each other. The sad thing is that they aren’t even the right song. For example, I wanted to play the song “Every time we Touch” by cascada and when I search it up, I see that all of the songs say cascada on them. But when I listen to them, they aren’t even remotely close to the actual song. I would love it if you could add something to prevent that since it is very annoying. Aside from that, I think it would be a good idea for you to add a function that allows you to transpose songs that you have downloaded on iTunes for the piano. So basically, if I have a song on iTunes that isn’t on the app, I could select the function and it would transpose itself to match the app. I think that it would be a good idea, and I think that it will make the app more enjoyable. Overall, it is a very fun app and I would like to see more happen with it. Thank you!
Fun, but...
by cheese1342🧀🧀🧀🧀 on 2018/05/09 03:26
I love the app and all, but I have some suggestions. First of all, for the sing jams thing, could you make an option for it, the option being not having to hit the exact note thing. Second, for the composer option, can you make it easy to figure out how to change the timing so the song you made doesn't go really slow? It frustrates me because other people's songs are the right tempo, but my songs never are. Third, when your searching for a song, could you make an option for only songs composed by smule show up? Sometimes, I don't want other people's songs because they can be wrong. Sometimes I want the actual correct version, if of course, smule made the song. That's it for now, so please make the changes. Other than that stuff, it's a great app. Oh, and one more thing, there are too many adds. And they come up too often. If you ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO HAVE ADDS, please make them different. I'm so sick of seeing your karaoke app's add. It just makes me not want to play this game or get the karaoke app.
It’s great but more
by kelly old mellie on 2018/07/23 05:50
I love this app you can play really good songs and especially I love how you put Beethoven songs I love playing them every day I love listening to music it just is pretty easy but I like it the only thing is I hate when you have to watch an ad before you play one of your favorite songs please just get rid of this these ads because like I’m starting to hate this app but I really love it and I love just like everything and it’s really nice how you put every song but and I don’t like how you have to cost coins for it and I just wanted to be like you know how on karaoke you can choose whatever song you want by now on this you don’t choose like what song you want and I want to choose whatever song I want to play but I can’t because I’m trying to practice on my 🎹 even though I love it and the only thing is just get rid of all the ads😘😛😠 all at the same time
It’s great!!! But...
by Heggru on 2018/09/03 22:51
This is by far my favorite app of all time! But... it’s got a one thing that isn’t so great. when ever I try to watch an video to get more smoola, it lets me watch it but then doesn’t give me the smoola and I’ve tried over and over again but it still won’t work!!! And when ever I get free songs it says that I need to pay for them even after it lets me play them!!! And sooooo many of my favorite songs need VIP access and I don’t have the money for something a stupid as a couple of songs on an app!!! But I still love this app even when it kills me off of it repeatedly and sometimes forces me to delete it along with all the songs I’ve payed for!!! And don’t even get me stated on the freaking billions of ads!!!! They suckkkkk!!! And almost every time I mess up it either doesn’t say anything or says something completely different then what I did and I know what I did but it’s kinda annoying to have it not tell me.
Used to be great
by Pyrowo1f on 2018/03/20 20:53
This app used to be a lot of fun. I used to play it every day. Since then, I moved on, but I remembered the app and came back. It’s taken a turn for the worst now. You used to have an ad-free experience even as a free user. You could still watch ads to get the in-app currency, Smoola, so you could buy songs. I did this almost religiously day by day. You can still do this, too. However, now you also get an ad after every. Single. Song. And that’s assuming you own the song. If you don’t, you’ll need to watch an ad before you play the song, too. The composer feature is incredible, and the user created songs are wonderful. The fact that they only cost 25 Smoola a piece is awesome. The ability to share your performances with friends, family, and the world (through the in-app “World” feature and the Smule website) is cool, too. But the entire experience is completely ruined by the prevalence and disruptiveness of the endless ads. Unless, of course, you pay the subscription fee on a monthly, three month, or annual basis.
This app has gone downhill.
by Pinapplesonpizza on 2018/08/21 06:09
I used to thoroughly enjoy this app, but it has become consistently worse as time has gone on. There used to be occasional ads, which are understandable, as you do have to make money, but now there are ads before and after almost every song. In similar fashion, you used to be able to play your songs offline, however now, to foster more advertising, no doubt, you must be online to play. Songs you purchase also have developed a nasty tendency of disappearing from one’s list of songs, and are still playable without purchase if you search for them, however this is annoying when you just wish to scroll through yours songs and play one, and it disappeared without your knowing. There was a time I’d have rated this app 5 stars, but due to increasing problems that add up, I’m giving it 2. I’m going to keep it downloaded in case updates fix any of these problems, but for now I’m going to stop playing, so they don’t get advertising money that I don’t think they deserve off of me.
Some magic in magic piano smule
by sophieshopkins😊 on 2018/06/24 01:49
I used to not like this game at all. I was thinking about deleting the app last time I played, but when I played it again, some things changed. There is actually some songs I like that are free, but ads. When you click on a song to play, it says your free content will be available after this ad, and it’s really annoying. I’ve gotten used to it, but I feel like they should get rid of that. Tons of people are tired of ads on games, and maybe magic piano smule can get rid of the ads on this game. That would totally bring back a lot of people. I 85% of me thought it was a good idea to delete this app, but I’m lowering it to a 40% now because I’m kinda impressed. Also, it’s kind of cool how there’s a ton of options other than ads to get free smoola. And I like that it’s only 25 smoola for songs I like instead of like 50. But on the other hand, you don’t get much smoola at all when you level up. They should give you 5 smoola, not like two! I’ll give it one more stars than I did before.
This is not fair

Ok so my 6 year old brother had my phone and he knows everything about it so he added his finger print to the phone and I had the Touch ID for my Apple ID and I found out I was getting these charges I didn’t know what they were at first but then I checked it out and saw charges from magic piano I haven’t even played this game in like 2 months so when I saw I got charges I thought that it was a mistake but I called my card and they told me that about a month ago I applied for a subscription on the app magic piano like I said I haven’t played this game I’m forever the only person that played it was my little brother and since he had my finger print he purchased the subscription and no one knew he might’ve thought it was free because when the purchase screen shows up it says free trial key word free so my brother saw that and pressed the button he saw the fingerprint sign and but his finger this is not fair at all we didn’t even know we were being charged and we weren’t even playing the game this is really unfair and I will never download this game again
AWESOME! Get it! its worth it!

Okay so i have probably had this app for like three years or something and i just recently came back to it and fell in love with it. and theres all these bad reviews like “ Oh theres too many adds” or “They all cost coins to get them!” Witch is bull because all games have adds try to think of one game on you're phone or iPad right now that doesn't have adds? Yeah you couldn't think of any could you. and its not like theres That many either. and for the people who say “oh well most of the songs cost coins!” Seriously? Theres a get more coins section and all you have to do is watch an add and u get enough coins for you're new song there. all i'm trying to say is this a great app and anyone who is thinking about getting it get it! because theres no hurt in giving it a try and if u don't like it then just delete it.
It's okay, but...

It's a little frustrating when you level up you're rewarded with a song you have already gotten for free. Also, the daily free songs just repeat over and over rarely giving you something you don't already have. One more thing I don't like is that most of the really good songs are only available with a "monthly subscription". That's it, everything else is good. 3 stars Update: I've been playing this game since 2011. It's always had its quirks that made it a pain in one way or another. The last year or so it has gotten so forceful with advertising that it's not even fun anymore. I very rarely play it anymore. Usually if I'm waiting in the car while the wife is shopping or something. There is an ad before and after every song. You can't close it without closing the game. Ridiculous to have to watch a 30 second ad to get your points, so you can watch another ad before you play the same song again at a different difficulty then another ad to get your stars. So I'm taking my previous stars back. Much to greedy anymore.
Good for fun, but not really for a wallet.

I wanted to use the free trial for a little bit, just to play some of the songs I liked. Well, it reactivated the trial somehow after I cancelled it. I didn’t do anything to reactivate it. And it didn’t even tell me. So, now I’m out $25 cause of it. You guys need to at least say it when you charge for the subscription cause I had no clue it was happening. I don’t have a job of my own, and I was using a credit card my parent opened for me. I hope you guys read this and figure out a way to fix this issue so people know when they’re gonna be charged. Or, instead of telling the, after they’re charged, tell them a few days before so they can cancel if need be. Not only that, but I can’t even access songs I was able to play with the VIP subscription after they were in my songbook. Why not just remove them from the song book rather than taunt players who cancelled their subscription with songs they played. You guys have gone downhill over the years...
They just won’t listen.

So I have known about this app since I was around 7 or 8 about a year after it came out. I remember back then that there were very few ads, and I just loved playing my favorite songs for hours! Now that has changed. I love the idea of being able to play a piano on your phone, but not when there’s ads after every single song you play. Not to mention that the piano is so quiet compared to the ads that if I have earbuds in, the ad’s music literally kills my ears! The daily challenge scores are most likely chosen randomly based on what I’ve seen, and that’s really disappointing. Also if there’s a long pause in a song, the notes will come down way faster than they’re supposed to (and you’ll lose your point streak if you wait). Oh yeah, and why is almost every song VIP? Why would someone pay $7.99 a week or whatever to play the piano on their phone? So that’s my rant, there’s probably more to complain about that I haven’t thought of.
What happened?
by OMGitswolfie on 2017/12/23 02:43
What in the world happened to this game?! I'm just a kid and i used to love this game when I was really young where I could play any song and didn't have to pay for any! What happened to that? You guys seem more greedy for money and we need a freaking VIP membership to get songs that is really popular?? WHAT?! Membership costs like 100 bucks! And what's with all the adds?? Everytime I just finish a song an add comes up and most of them are apps I already have! Some adds have sexual content which I shouldn't be seeing! I really enjoy this app but the songs that I love are like 75 coins now! Now I have to copy it and change a note just so I could play it! What's up with all of that stuff?! If the adds get away or the VIP is more cheap like 10 bucks or something more people would buy it instead of making it 100 bucks people wouldn't buy it so expensive! Too many adds are occuring! I give this a 3 stars.
Not much fun anymore!

I have been using this app for over 5 years. I loved it and was addicted. I loved challenging myself to play the easy level perfect, then medium, then hard. If I messed up, I restarted. Many songs were quite challenging. I loved it until level 100; the highest you can go. It’s like the developers of the app gave up. No more achievements to earn, no coins for leveling up and no new instruments. How disappointing!! I played this app every day. It was fun, challenging, and relaxing. I agree the VIP members only should be removed. I also would pay a small fee to remove the horrendous amount of ads that I am forced to endure. It was never like that when I started. And I had an issue a year or so back where I had to uninstall and reinstall the app. Lost all my progress. Songs were there but no stars. Like starting all over again. I was upset. So, where once I would have given it 5 stars, I gave 3. I was debating if I should give it a 2. And I forgot to mention the daily challenge of which I never got into the top 50. How did all of us, get an average score of around 1,212 points while 1 person got 2,065. Impossible, and it happened many times. If the developers put better changes in an update and make the app similar to what it used to be, I would give them 5 stars again. I am an older person and I’m disappointed in this app.
This app is horrible.
by Jammapanda on 2017/07/08 03:05
Let me start with the fact that you only earn one smoola every time you level up, which every song costs 25 to 75 smoola so that is very ridiculous also taking into account that to get more than around 30 XP, you have to play a new song. Next the game will tell you that your finger is "too far right" or "too far left" when your finger is exactly on the note which brings down points. The songs are mostly a bunch of crap and if you buy a song that isn't what it says it was you can't return it, no you're stuck with a worthless song. Also let me mention, there is an ad after EVERY SINGLE SONG YOU PLAY. I have the patience to sit through an ad every two to three songs but after every single song? It's ridiculous. You have to pay an $8 a week membership just to play certain songs or not have to use smoola to unlock songs which is absurd. Maybe $8 a month but not a week. A month would be around $32 so a year would be around $500. Wow. This is a horrible app.
This app makes my life much better....

I’ve played songs on Magic Piano for five years. I’m sorry to see so many complaints in the reviews. I guess they are dissatisfied with the game element. I just play the song book as I have a subscription yearly. It is dang little money to pay for the hours of pleasure it affords me. I’m 78 years old and there is hardly a day goes by that I don’t have my Smule fix. I have mastered over 400 songs pretty much sticking to the traditional, musical theatre, and classical ones. I like to see my scores even though I can’t usually better my highest scores probably posted years ago. My old fingers are not as flexible as they used to be. I love the concerts I play for myself and get great satisfaction in playing my favorites over and over. Use my iPad Pro and love Magic piano. ❤️❤️
Normies only; not for music enthusiasts
by Darren is epic435 on 2018/03/08 01:47
If you are a hip, cool young adult female, you would love this. For a serious musician or even someone starting in music, this is not for you. Most songs available are from smule, and put to the top of every list. All of the songs are dumb pop numbers that never captured the depth of said pop numbers even if the originals were still shallow. Almost every song put out by them is easy to play and sounds vaguely like the original. As for the composer feature, its stupid. There are only 2 time signatures available, 4/4 and 3/4, meaning no waltz in 6/8 or oddities in 5/4. The system is for beginners who don’t know how to read sheet music which is fine, except this is the ONLY way to write songs, which makes songwriting here TEDIOUS. Also, once you post your song, the only way for it to be seen is if someone searches one of your tags or titles. Meaning all of smule’s crappy songs are on top. They also have a weird fetish for chasing cars.
To the ruthless complainers
by Jane Spindly on 2017/11/11 02:33
For those who complain about ads, go read a book. They're just a few seconds long, and you can close them easily. If it gives you crashes I'm sorry, but just do what I do: play the entire song except for the last note. Then you can go and play a different one. Yes, that blocks off your experience, but you can just get one of the easy XP 1000+ songs and be rich. And for those who say all the good songs are VIP, go read two books. You do not deserve the pleasure of hearing the masterpieces of Disney orchestras. Musicals have fantastic music too, so please stop complaining about your cool teenage rap songs being unavailable. This is the only app you'll ever need, if you can't see that then you obviously don't recognize how much of a blessing it is.
Garbage
by TheGantos119 on 2017/12/28 19:21
I used to like this app. But now it’s just a cheap excuse for money. There’s too many ads. You have to watch an ad or else you won’t get any score for playing a song. You can’t play offline either, or else it won’t show your songs. You know why? Because ads have to have internet to work. I’m not doing a monthly subscription for smule points either. It’s just a piano app. It’s not like Xbox Live or PlayStation+ where it makes sense to have a monthly subscription. Because with those, you have more than just one game. Not just one where you tap the screen. I just don’t see the point in that. I’m sick of the video ads too. You’re forced to watch one once you finish a song and it gets annoying and repetitive very quickly. Not to mention you have to watch them if you want to get more songs. Or, you could subscribe to smule. Again, I don’t see why anyone would want to do this. If this game was fair and not such an obvious excuse to make a few dollars, I wouldn’t have a problem with it.
Pretty awesome!
by Okay👍🏼 on 2017/06/30 22:27
This game is so addicting and fun, it's cool that other players can make their own songs and compose actual real songs too!👍😁 But most the time they get the song wrong and don't do it right and mess up the song they are actually trying to make...but it's ok. Some songs people compose are actually very good👍. Also, it makes a bigger song selection.😀It is really hard to get money though, you have to watch a 20 sec. ad to get at least 5 smoola (money). Ads are really sooo annoying!😒😔 Recently there has been an ad every time I play a song (Finish a song). Pretty annoying! Problems: - Too many ads - Someone should check bad, incorrect, or songs that aren't really...songs... Overall, this game is so simple, yet challenging...which makes it so fun! 😀
Steals your smoola
by iraz12345 on 2018/06/13 20:14
So I’ve always loved this app and had it on my devices since 2015, always loved it. Now here’s where it gets annoying. There are times when I would search up a song and try and purchase it with smoola. I looked up the song “suteki Dane” by final fantasy and had 29 in smoola. The price for the song was 25 so I was like okay, I can afford this. I clicked the icon with the 25 smoola on it and it started loading saying “preparing your song” and then out of nowhere it said “something went wrong” so in my head I was like, OK. I’ll just wait a bit then open up my songs cause I already bought it. I opened up the app again and it still had that purchase next to the song so I clicked on it again and it said I don’t have enough smoola so I was like oh I think it might have been in my song book already. But no! I went to my song book and it wasn’t even there and smule charged me 25 smoola and now I’m left with 4 smoola on my account. And I didn’t even get the song I wanted to buy. 🤷🏾‍♀️
Ads are too annoying-full version too costly
by csf97 on 2018/04/23 00:02
I don’t mind an ad every so often, but it has gotten to where you have to view an ad to play a song, view an ad as soon as you hit continue after finishing the song and then view an ad again as soon as you select the next song. I will never buy Adventure Capitalist no matter how many times you show me that super annoying ad. I would love to play it to relax and get rid of stress, but the constant ads cause stress instead of relieving it. I would buy this game in a heartbeat if it was $19 or less as a one time purchase, but the monthly subscription is ridiculously priced. Also, I don’t know if it is my new iPad Generation 6 or the latest iOS update but it is incorrectly penalizing for “too many fingers” the last day or so, especially when it’s a 4 finger note. Please, Smule, reconsider the number of ads or your pricing method and fix the recent incorrect “too many fingers” error.
